Editorial Reviews

Diana Krall has had a long time fascination with bossa nova, a type of music which perfectly suits her sophisticated yet sensual style. This culminated in her new studio album "Quiet Nights" (released by Verve in spring 2009) and in this stunning concert filmed in the home of the bossa nova, Rio de Janeiro, in November 2008. Accompanied by her band and an orchestra, Diana Krall delivers a superb set of standards in true bossa nova style but clearly bearing her unique stamp. This DVD captures Diana Krall at her scintillating best.

I had the good fortune to have been a disc jockey on one of the few radio stations that still played "Easy Listening" music up until the late '90s, KQUE in Houston(until it was sold and flipped to Spanish).
I played Sinatra and Jobim, Stan Getz and Astrud Gilberto and Sergio Mendes, wishing all the time that the bossa nova had not been just a passing musical genre, in the US at least. Then here comes Diana Krall bringing back that magical beat on a couple of her recent albums and THEN, a DVD of a concert in Rio! I just finished watching the whole thing from end to end and I was enthralled, especially with the audience of cariocas singing along in Portuguese to,"The Boy from Ipanema". I thought I heard Astrud somewhere in there at the back table. I almost didn't buy this DVD because of some of the negative reviews here, but my birthday is coming up and I thought, hey, I'll get this for myself and tell those who would buy me another shirt that I'm fixed, thank you. If you are determined to purchase only one Diana Krall,"Live in ..." DVD, by all means get Paris.
But if you love Diana, John, Jeff and Anthony AND the bossa nova and can't imagine it getting better than played before an audience in the city of its birth (and the liner notes didn't even put an apostrophe in "its"), buy this DVD as fast as you can.

Like a lot of commenters here, I'm a longtime fan of the Paris concert who has wanted to see it released on Blu-ray (although the DVD of Paris looks and sounds nice on my setup, even projected 9 1/2' wide).

I bought this Blu-ray in part figuring that if the Paris concert was ever to make it to Blu-ray, this disk would have to be successful first - if Rio tanked commercially, forget Paris. (My apologies to Billy Crystal).

Well, I was pleasantly suprised by this disk. I'd put the quality of the playing at nearly the same level as the Paris concert and better than on the Montreal disk, particularly Anthony Wilson's guitar work. Diana's soloing was not as flashy as in Paris - fewer sly quotes of other tunes slipped in - but very appropriate to the material involved. The singing seems less well-crafted (she seems to chew her words here rather than sing wide-open), but the overall presentation is very good. I've always loved her version of "Frim Fram Sauce" and "I Don't Know Enough About You" - both from her The Girl in the Other Room CD - but no Joni Mitchell song? ;->

It does seem as though they had only one or two HD cameras at the concert, which were focused on Diana's face and keyboard, with everyone else, onstage or in the audience, caught on lesser-quality cameras (or just not lit as well) - but that's balanced out by the scenic shots, which are out-of-this-world beautiful, and used to lead into most of the tunes.

On the other hand, the other onstage shots are not subjected to image "enhancement" that might make them irritating - no halos or jaggies of the sort that make some disks nearly unwatchable. The video of the other musicians looks about as good as it does on the Paris concert DVD, which is very good.

Being a Brazilian, my opinion can't be other than "fantastic".
It was great to hear Diana singing in Portuguese. And with a carioca's (from Rio de Janeiro) accent at that!!!
She looks even more gorgeous, her voice is a sweet caress to the listener's ears and soul, the musicians playing with her are spectacular, and the images are clear as only the blu-ray technology (so far) can achieve.
I've never been to Rio (and probably never will, for in my opinion the natural beauties fall short of overcoming the violence over there), but the public added a very nice and warm atmosphere to this show, and the locations in which they filmed the extras and interviews really are great.
Even with all its problems, Rio still is the perfect background for such a wonderful combination of bossa nova and light jazz.

This is the first time I've written a review, but I just don't agree with the other reviews here.
I am a huge Diana Krall fan or perhaps I should say was a huge fan, because after buying both Quiet Nights and Live in Rio, I'm starting to reexamine my position.
I have all her early CD's as well as Live in Paris, which I've watched at least 50 times. I should state that I don't care for her newer CD's, but her rendition of the American Songbook songs are superb.
However, Live in Rio was a disappointment. Though it used the same artists as Live in Paris, it lacked the energy and creativity of Live in Paris, and I expected to see the passion of the environment that spawned the Bossa Nova rythms that seemed to imbue her earlier work.
Finally, the quality of the lighting and camera work was not even in the same league as Live in Paris. The Blue Ray (which I purchased) was much worse than the standard DVD of Live in Paris.
In summary, nice but not the Diana I came to love. Uninspired!!!

Mrs. Krall has grown old, like all of us. But less than Anthony Wilson and especially Jack Hamilton.
Compared with the Paris Concert at the Olympia, this takes second place. Maybe it's the age of all members, maybe is the Rio's venue, maybe they took to much sunshine in Ipanema Beach. Mrs Krall has grown up emotionally, but she lost some of the magificent "peppy energy" she showed us at Paris. Her right hand piano is a bit more forceful which contrasts with the left hand, that remains weak.

It is probably unfair to blame the sound engineers. I know the sound of Olympia in Paris. It is a rather small place where a single voice unamplified is quite good in the mid to rear stalls, I don't know about the balcony. The French always had good sound engineers. Brazil has no tradition in that area.Most good Bossa nova records were recorded in New York studios.

Anyway it is a good live session. But releasing it in Blue Ray with compressed DTS sound, makes no sense. It would make sense in HI-DEF Sound and Standard video..If that exists?
