Top Customer Reviews
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.
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.Read more ›
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.
