"This 45rpm version is Absolutely Stunning! I thought the 33 was great till I gave the 45 test pressing a spin... the opening cut is just Jaw-Dropping! There is just MORE of EVERYTHING: Air, Space, Dynamics, Detail... you name it!" - Bob Bantz, president of Elusive Disc
The first-ever live concert recording from Grammy®-winning vocalist/pianist Diana Krall was Recorded at the Paris Olympia Theatre. Here finally, captured in amazing audio quality, is an album showcasing the magic of Kralls concert performances.
Krall and her band perform some of the tunes from Kralls studio recordings, such as "East of the Sun (West of the Moon)" and "Devil May Care." They are joined by special guests John Pisano (acoustic guitar) and Paulinho DaCosta (percussion) for several tracks, including the Gershwins "Swonderful." The Orchestre Symphonique Europeen, conducted by Alan Broadbent with special guest conductor Claus Ogerman, is featured on the upbeat "Lets Fall in Love" and a haunting interpretation of "Ive Got You Under My Skin."
"This album will definitely be in "The Demi-Gods". Close Miked and Very Immediate, like a Direct-to-Disc. Natural and Dynamic, but it has a limited sense of a large space. Superb Pressing!" - Arthur Salvatore, High End Audio
Audiophile Audition / audaud.com Rated 4 1/2 stars
"ORG has remastered the tapes for audiophile 45 rpm vinyl. The results are flawless. There is warmth in the tones that reflect the acoustic sound of the band. The separation is precise, especially in the mixes with the orchestra. The intricate registers and suppleness of Kralls voice are presented with impeccable clarity." - Audiophile Audition, audaud.com, September 2011
Soundstage Rated 5 out of 5 for Recording Quality!
"A favorite of audiophiles because her music and voice lend themselves to purist recording techniques, Diana Krall perpetually sounds in great form on her recordings... The sound, remastered by Bernie Grundman, is clear, spacious and well defined -- outstanding in every way, the backing players as vivid as Krall's voice and piano..." - Marc Mickelson, soundstage.com, May 2009
"One of Diana Kralls most beloved CDs, Live in Paris, has been given a loving audiophile LP remastering treatment by ace engineer legend, Bernie Grundman and produced by an audiophile label new to us, Original Recordings. The shimmering string arrangements on Lets Fall in Love and Ive Got You Under My Skin, are testament alone to the real life power of vinyl..." - Audiophile Audition
"Bernie Grundmans remastering for vinyl puts Live in Paris in the gold plated category for the legions of Krall aficionados. This two-LP audiophile edition would make an ideal late night listening experience, or the perfect background soundtrack for a special dinner party." - Audiophile Audition
