Diana Krall performed in Tbilisi in frames of Tbilisi Jazz Festival and her own Wallflower World Tour on October 23, 2015.
We visited this show at Tbilisi Philharmonic hall (Previous time I was here was a concert of a Russian band Aquarium and Boris Grebenshchikov 2014).
During this show some older songs from Diana Krall repertoire, like Fly me to the moon were performed and of course some new ones. But speaking of me, I most probably enjoyed the most song California Dreamin'. Amazing show, great animated visuals on screen.
The show was set to start at 20:00
Stage is ready for Diana Krall at Tbilisi Jazz Festival 2015
As it happens in such events, show didn't started at 20:00 but at 21:00, so the visitors had plenty time to take selfies and I had plenty time to master my DSLR photography (I took my camera with telephoto lens attached)

Tbilisi Philharmonic hall
Our seats were at the balcony and telephoto lens test for my digital photography school project seemed just right solution. So I played a little while waiting show to be started.

Just amazing how keyboards (Patrick Warren) and piano (Diana Krall) worked together in ideal symphony. And amazingly good photo as well.

This was probably the version of California Dreamin' I have enjoyed the most. Just amazing.
The Bottom Line
I must admit I was not familiar with Diana Krall until few years ago I was "educated" on Jazz music drinking wine and listening to classics like Louis Armstrong and other, and then.. then I was introduced to great works of Diana Krall. Speaking of this night - Absolutely brilliant show spent in pleasant company.
