Episode Summary

Since the penultimate Spectacle episode of the year is 'something completely different', as Monty Python once put it, the producers even changed the title of the show from 'Elvis Costello With …' to 'Diana Krall Interviewed By Elton John'. Other than a wee bit of music, Mr. Costello recuses himself and turns the proceedings over to his wife, Diana Krall, and one of the show's Executive Producers, Elton John. After Elvis opens the affair with a jazzy rendition of his song Almost Blue, Elton joins Diana at a piano where they proceed to discuss jazz, favorite sad songs and the singers who sing them. After a duet with Elton, Diana is joined by Karriem Riggins and Christian McBride, the same rhythm section which played with Herbie Hancock two weeks earlier (and also opened the show with Elvis). After a couple of solo performances, she is joined by Elvis and Elton for a warm and humorous closing number.moreless
