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.

Diana Krall and company do it again! Another fine live performance we can experience again and again on DVD. The musical selections are nicely arranged and very well recorded. The group's generally laid-back mood is definitely in sync with this Brazilian-inspired concert. The instrumental improvisations are polished and very musical and Diana's vocals will transport you to Rio.

To those pseudo-techie critics, I recommend you pull your heads out of your iPods and really listen to the fantastic performances here. As a life-long jazz musician myself, I have better ears and probably better electronics than most of you. I find no basis for your negative reviews. As the witty Mose Allison once wrote, "Critics... they can't swim and they can't even float. They just stand at the shore and wave at the boat."

Pay no attention to the "amateur opinion havers" and blog-trogs. This is an exceptional Diana Krall concert and DVD recording. If you like her work, you'll probably love this video.

If you are a Diana Krall fan, you probably already have the Rio concert video, as I did, and have been savoring it. What's to recommend for the extra purchase with a 70 minute length disc?

How often can you experience up close, intimate performances from your favorite artist without the overlay of many instruments? Half of Disc 2 features 36 minutes of Diana singing solo at the piano for a benefit in Toronto (broadcast across Canada) on Heart Health for Women. She's pretty gutsy, pulling this off in an intimate, bare bones performance that left me so floored I had to hit the review button and watch it again! This tune list is; "Where or When," "Exactly Like You," "Walk on By," "Deed I Do," "Quiet Nights," "Frim Fram Sauce," "A Case of You," and "I Don't Know Enough about you." On "Frim Fram," she jokingly changes certain of the lyrics (since this was a benefit on heart health) and then stops the song momentarily after she confessed that substituting "margarine" for "sha fafa" was over the top! It's clear she enjoys performance!

The Madrid Session comprises two songs, the first being a ten minute romp of "Deed I Do" followed by "So Nice" and "P.S. I Love you" (NOT the Beatles tune, of course). The crowd here appears more tepid or restrained in response. Anthony Wilson is the only member of her quartet from Rio to play with her. The others are different musicians.

The Lisbon Session is a favorite of mine. The combo is set up in a room and her band members--none from Rio--do exquisite work. Wow! I had to watch it again right away. Lovely ambiance and choreography.

The Rio Rooftop features Anthony Wilson on acoustic guitar, Jeff Hamilton playing brushes on what appears to be a rimmed, circular serving platter and Diana singing solo with no piano.

I have both the Montreal and Paris DVD's they both have their own character and personality. The Brazil DVD adds a mature musicianship that puts Diana and her group in a new category which will carry her into the future. Guitar players are astonished by Anthony Wilson's genius and the best jazz guitarist of today, Jeff Hamilton who is internationally known as the greatest brush drummer shows that on this DVD. And, of course, Mr. Clayton who is one of the greatest composers as well as bass players. No, this DVD is more than a performance. It is a tribute to great jazz players. Maybe the Oscar Peterson Munich concert equals it in importance... Buy this and you will be playing it 10 years from now

I bought the single-disc edition of this DVD a few years ago at Best Buy. The second disc is as good as the first, and it is a real treat.

The first disc is the same as the original release. Disc 2 has an additional 70 minutes of material, including a benefit performance in Toronto done solo by Diana, informal sessions from Madrid and Lisbon, a "rooftop session" from Rio, and the video for "Quiet Nights."

I won't detail the track listing because other reviewers already have. The most intriguing track, for me, was the version of the old standard "P.S. I Love You," recorded in Madrid. Although not as well-known as The Beatles' first B-side of the same name, I'm surprised that Diana didn't get Paul McCartney to record the other "P.S." on Kisses On The Bottom. That would have been interesting! Someday, someone will do a medley of the two.

The booklet for the Special Edition also includes the lyrics for the songs on Disc 1; the original edition had only photographs.

This Special Edition is a definite buy, whether or not you own the earlier DVD.

If you love the latin beat and love Antonio Carlos Jobim, then you will love Diana Krall's very jazzy interpretation of this wonderful music! Her soft, sexy voice mingles with her excellent talents as a jazz piano artist in front of a live, very appreciative audience in Rio. Diana's bossa nova style gives a jazzy new twist to many old classics. However, Krall gets her greatest applause when she sings Jobim's Quiet Nights and The Boy From Ipanema, as well as Este Seu Olhar with the audience joining her in singing this beautiful song. If you want to spend 135 minutes of pure joy, buy this great DVD. I also have the CD and enjoy the soft sounds of Krall while driving along the highways and byways. Sooo soothing! Muy Bueno!
