DVD of the Month - "Diana Krall: Live in Rio Special Edition"

DVD of the Month
Diana Krall: "Live in Rio" Special Edition (2-Disc Set, Eagle Vision/ST2)
This special edition of "Live in Rio" (with 207 minutes) includes features not only the complete material from the standard DVD, as well as a second disc with extra live tracks filmed in Canada, Spain and Portugal, plus the "Rooftop Sessions" (filmed at the Fasano Hotel in Rio de Janeiro, featuring Brazilian bossa nova master Carlos Lyra singing "Corcovado" and "Garota de Ipanema", with legendary producer Tommy LiPuma in the "audience") which were previously available only on the Blu-ray release and on the Japanese issue of the standard DVD. The promotional film for the "Quiet Nights" song completes the second disc.
