Paolo Conte – Live Around The World

Paolo Conte Live Collection Exploded Packshot - 530

An accomplished jazz pianist who commands more styles than Rome has cultural landmarks, Paolo Conte’s live shows have long been the stuff of legend for his many fans. Like an Italian Serge Gainsbourg, with Italian jazz, French chanson and Argentinian tango at his fingertips, Conte might one minute be singing a melancholy song about loss, the next taking a wry look at life’s vicissitudes. All the while, he transposes audiences from the concert hall to a classy, globe-trotting lifestyle that Conte’s music embodies.

A string of live albums released though the 80s and 90s have cemented Conte’s reputation as a performer par excellence. On 1 July they get reissued in the 6CD+DVD Live Collection, a deluxe seven-disc box set that not only makes these much-loved albums available for the first time in ages, but includes a DVD with footage of the complete 2005 album Paolo Conte Live Arena Di Verona, along with a host of bonus video material.

Known to vary his setlists wildly throughout his career, Conte ensures that, for fans, his performances aren’t just concerts, they’re events. There’s no way we could do justice to the scope of his live prowess here, but one glance at the tracklist will convince fans – if they need any convincing at all – that the Live Collection box set is an essential purchase:
