about

Diane's most recent album, Kiss Me Like That, is a collection of 13 songs celebrating humanity’s fascination with the sky. From the title track’s infectious rhythms, to ‘Cuando sale la luna’ – Diane’s sultry ode to the moon, her original compositions on this album are all influenced by the wonders of the sky and stars. Her six original songs are perfectly complemented by classic jazz standards chosen carefully for this project, like “Stardust”, “Skylark”, “They All Laughed”, as well as her intimate interpretations of folk & pop songs such as James Taylor’s “Sweet Baby James” and Sting’s “Valparaiso.”

REVIEWS:

"...Though Nalini's vocals and Kelly Jefferson's sax solo conjure magical nights, "Cuando Sale La Luna" (When the Moon Comes Out) makes me wish I understood Spanish."

-- Ashante Infantry, The Toronto Star


"Après Songs of Sweet Fire, qui réunissait des textes de Shakespeare mis en musique par la dame, ce quatrième opus présente, dans les langues du Barde, de Molière, de Cervantes et de Pessoa, de nouvelles chansons et quelques standards axés sur le thème des astres et du cosmos. Et pour cette célébration en musique de l’Année de l’astronomie, l’élégance, le charme et le swing sont toujours au rendez-vous. Décidément, une étoile (de moins en moins) méconnue au firmament du jazz vocal d’ici."

-- Stanley Péan, Voir (Four stars)

Track Name: Kiss me like that
KISS ME LIKE THAT by Diane Nalini

We've grown apart, you and I
Expanding since the dawn of time
And somewhere on their lonely way
Your tender words suffered a delay
Not just a lag, but a cooling down
X-ray passion red-shifted to brown

Oh be a fine girl, kiss me like that
You said, be my fire girl
Oh be a fine girl, kiss me like that
You begged, be my fire girl...

I lack the critical mass to collapse
Your wispy halo of cold gas
Rekindle the fire at the core
Of the hot blue furnace we burned in before
But I remember the early days
Fusing bodies consumed in the blaze

Oh be a fine girl, kiss me like that
You said, be my fire girl
Oh be a fine girl, kiss me like that
You begged, be my fire girl...

Words spiral out on their pointless flight
Riding a carrier wave into the night
But your cold eye settles only on dust
Remnants of the Big Bang between us
And will a new orbit bring you luck?
Captured forever, or ever in flux?

Oh be a fine girl, kiss me like that
You said, be my fire girl
Oh be a fine girl, kiss me like that
You begged, be my fire girl...
Track Name: Cuando sale la luna
CUANDO SALE LA LUNA by Diane Nalini

Cuando sale la luna
Se abren las ventanas
Y el olor de la noche entra en suspiros

Cuando sale la luna
Pinta zonas de sombra
De un azul tan frío que la nieve misma está celosa

Nunca llega al fin de su eterno viaje
Condenada a siempre amar al sol desde lejos

Cuando sale la luna
Más allá de las nubes
Las estrellas de plata sonríen en el vacío
Track Name: Love in outer space
LOVE IN OUTER SPACE by Diane Nalini

I tune my dial to the hydrogen line times pi
'Cause it's irrational just like me
Will you meet me on the same frequency?
Don't tell me that you've come down from the mountain top
With all the answers on two slabs of stone
You're just talking to the wind
'Cause no one likes to feel alone

So meet me on the international channel of love
Meet me on the international channel of love

I sent a call on a telescope carved from stone
It had a map of my neighbourhood
We're just three rocks from the big ball of fire
Don't tell me that you've never met a girl like me
Who didn't flutter at your slightest smile
You don't have to turn water to wine
A little kindness will do fine

Just meet me on the international channel of love
Meet me on the international channel of love

I wish the boys on Earth would just keep their peace
And stop trying to tell me what to believe
So if you're out there Honey, then just hold tight
Cause hope is all I need, hope is all I need

(meet me on the international channel of love
meet me on the international channel of love)

I'll hitch a ride on a satellite bound for Mars
Cause maybe there I'll find something real
I'm not looking for salvation, I just want to feel
Don't tell me that you flew to me while other slept
And made it home before the light of dawn
Cause I don't need a miracle, Baby
If I've got your love to keep me warm

Meet me on the international channel of love
Meet me on the international channel of love, etc.
Track Name: Le tournesol
LE TOURNESOL by Diane Nalini

Approche, je n’te ferai pas de mal
Offre-moi ta main, je t’emmènerai
Là où les cauchemars s’effacent dans la nuit
Loin de cette vie noyée sans cesse par la pluie

Viens, ouvre doucement les yeux
Sens-tu la chaleur de ma lumière
À toi de suivre les traces de ma lueur
Laisse mes rayons percer ton cœur

Raconte-moi tes chagrins d’amour
Tes larmes sècheront vite
Chez moi tout s’évapore lorsque je sors, alors...

Approche, je n’te ferai pas de mal
Offre-moi ta main, je t’emmènerai
Là où les cauchemars s’effacent dans la nuit
Loin de cette vie noyée sans cesse par la pluie

Viens, ouvre doucement les yeux
Sens-tu la chaleur de ma lumière
À toi de suivre les traces de ma lueur
Laisse mes rayons percer ton cœur

Pour que je t’échauffe de ma chaleur
Laisse mes rayons percer ton cœur.
Track Name: Winter eclipse
WINTER ECLIPSE by Diane Nalini

The moon is peeking through the treetops
She paints blue shadows on the ground
Knee-deep in a snow drift I wait up
While you pass hot toddies around
Round, honey and whisky and lime
Passing the time, passing the time

You've planted lawn chairs in the snow bank
We balance gingerly in place
The night holds the promise of romance
Just us in the vastness of space
Space, twinkling stars in their grace
Spinning through space, spinning through space

I know it's exciting to stay up
Apart from the cold it's bliss
We don't want to miss this Christmas eclipse
But really I must insist on blankets

At last, Earth's shadow seems to sneak up
The moon, she bathes in amber light
Mid pour you stop talking and look up
You're right, it's a marvelous sight
Night, light from the rusty red glow
Softens the snow, softens the snow

I know it's exciting to stay up
Apart from the cold it's bliss
We don't want to miss this Christmas eclipse
But really I must insist on blankets

At last, Earth's shadow seems to sneak up
The moon, she bathes in amber light
Mid pour you stop talking and look up
You're right, it's a marvelous sight
Bright, light from the neighbours next door
Turn off the light, turn off the light!
Turn off... the light
Track Name: Mundos escondidos
MUNDOS ESCONDIDOS by Diane Nalini

Chuva na estrada nessa noite, Amor
Ando mirando no chão
Adivinhando só

Chuva na estrada nessa noite tão fría
Tantos milagres perdidos
Tantos beijos oferecidos

Olhe a lua quase cheia
Veja o seu lado escuro
Olhe as nuvens de Maglhães
Rastros de mundos escondidos

Rastros de mundos escondidos, Amor
Longe de tí
Luz antiga das estrelas
Brilha no meu coração
