LOS ANGELES (AP) - Diana Krall knows how to pay tribute to Neil Armstrong.

The jazz singer-pianist tenderly played "Fly Me to the Moon" during a Saturday night concert at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.

Krall said she once was lucky enough to share a glass of wine with the first man to walk on the moon. The astronaut died Saturday at 82.

Armstrong probably was wishing he didn't have to listen to the pop standard again, Krall said lightly, after gazing toward the night sky.
