"Turn Up the Quiet" could almost be considered a loose concept album, and not just because it's a back-to-basics move. Krall has chosen to focus on material that's soft, intimate, and romantic—nothing too hot and almost nothing upbeat, though even on ballads she and her band can work up a swing. These are songs you'd play in the background during a romantic dinner for two. It's all right there in the song titles: The album opens with “Like Someone In Love,” segues into “Isn't It Romantic,” and ends with “I'll See You in My Dreams.” They all unfold with the graceful, unhurried pace of an evening stroll.

"Turn Up the Quiet" features Krall performing in different configurations—trio, quartet, quintet—with occasional accents from a string section. The strings are especially welcome on “Isn't It Romantic,” providing a lush backdrop for Krall, who performs in a literal whisper.
