Live in Paris is the first DVD and live album and seventh overall album by Canadian jazz pianist and vocalist Diana Krall, released in 2002 (see 2002 in music). The DVD video was filmed during Krall's sold-out concert at Paris's Olympia on November 29 - December 2, 2001 and includes songs from her multi-platinum albums Only Trust Your Heart, All for You, When I Look in Your Eyes and The Look of Love. In the United States alone, the album sold over 500,000 copies while the DVD sold over 200,000 copies. The album won the 2003 Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Album and the 2003 Juno Award for Vocal Jazz Album of the Year. Billboard ranked the album at number 8 on the magazine's Top Jazz Albums of the Decade.

Reception[edit]

Christopher Loudon of JazzTimes wrote "I’m guessing that producer Tommy LiPuma, sage pulse-taker that he is, recognized it was high time for Krall to get back to basics. If so, 10 points for Tommy. Apart from the presence, on two of the album’s 11 tracks, of the syrupy but subdued Orchestre Symphonique Europeen, Live in Paris features the British Columbia beauty stripped bare, passion fully exposed, intensity cranked to 11. Raw, unplugged, pure. Krall 101".[4]

Nail Gader of The Absolute Sound stated "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".[1]

Jeff Cebulski of Paste Magazine commented "In the meantime, Krall croons blue notes heretofore reserved for Cassandra Wilson (in Joni Mitchell’s "A Case of You"), whispers wispy ballads, and even scats a bit—a welcome return to her early form, before market-driven pressures took over".[5]
