Kak Ungku was 'introduced' to this gorgeous jazz singer, Diana Krall by my FB's friend Roslan Shaari. I love jazz and I love Diana's songs and her voice very much. My favourite songs (jazz & bossa nova versions) among others are Fly Me to the Moon, Cry Me a River, Look of Love, Walk on By and A Case of You.
