Diana Krall’s 12th album, Quiet Nights, is a comfort-food sequel to 2001’s orchestrally drenched The Look of Love. But this reunion with arranger Claus Ogerman more fully indulges in the kind of bossa novas that he cooked up for Sinatra & Jobim in the ’60s. If Ogerman’s ”Girl From Ipanema” self-homage is predictable, the other choices are inspired, including an unrecognizably melancholy ”I’ve Grown Accustomed to His Face.” Ogerman might be the only arranger alive who can make an overstuffed orchestra sound so distant and wistful, and Krall, suddenly channeling Julie London, is the taciturn symphony’s whispery match.
