The title of the singer-pianist's latest says it all: This is an album designed for getting cozy with your lover—or your favorite pillow—in the still of the night. There is a hushed intimacy to these torchy ballads (including standards like "Too Marvelous for Words" and the sultry standout, "I've Grown Accustomed to His Face") and slow-burning bossa novas (with three songs from Brazilian great Antonio Carlos Jobim). The overall effect, though, can get a bit too sleepy, with Krall and company playing it a little too cool.
