"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
Featured on the album are live renditions of "The Look of Love," the title track from Krall's platinum-certified Verve release, her first recorded version of the Joni Mitchell-penned "A Case of You," and "Fly Me to the Moon," a song not included on the previously-released DVD Diana Krall – Live in Paris (Eagle Eye/Pioneer Entertainment).
Also on this recording is a special bonus studio track—a rendition of Billy Joel's "Just The Way You Are" featuring Michael Brecker's beautiful tenor sax solo.
"One of Diana Krall's 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 Let's Fall in Love and I've Got You Under My Skin, are testament alone to the real life power of vinyl..." - Audiophile Audition
"Bernie Grundman's 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
"The recording, engineered by legend Al Schmitt, sounded good on CD. But ORG's stellar two-disc, 180-gram vinyl reissue, remastered by Bernie Grundman, trumps it. Surfaces are dead quiet, and the LP is lighter on its feet, more layered, airier, finer grained, and more transparent. Live in Paris is a great addition to a choice LP collection." - Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound, January 2010, Issue 200, reviewing the 180g ORG 33 1/3rpm version
