If you're going to cover Steely Dan, you'd better do a GOOD job.
 
Good job, Howard....

I listened to both The Girl In The Other Room and The Look Of Love last night, by chance. I don't listen to her voice as much as I do the overall sound of her recordings. I'm not in total agreement with Janis, after all, I have some of her recordings. But I do think that there are times when her intimate voice comes off as a bit weak. And, she also tends to clip the vocals rather than letting her voice trail off, kind of like Tony Bennett. So I like her, but I don't love her. 

I like Tony Bennett too, but sometimes his phrases end too abruptly for my ear.  

 
Her voice does have it's limitations, yes. There's not a lot of sustain there, and not much power - IIRC, she started out just playing the piano until someone talked her into singing. She may not have had a lot of vocal training.

Well, if you can tune out her voice, she's also a good jazz piano player.

But I like her voice. She's not trying to belt it out. She's aiming for sultry intimacy, and I think she nails it. YMMV.

I can't stand Diana Krall.  I find her voice annoying, as if she's not giving it her all.  It's like listening to someone with a monotone voice droaning on, and on, and on.........I want to light a fire under her.

Perhaps her appeal is somewhat gender-dependent.

Brandi Carlile does a great version of this at her live shows, works really well with her voice:
