One of the true perks of being a superstar is that you can have your cake and eat it, too. On his new live, all-instrumental recording, Phil Collins performs the hits that made him a pop prince, but in a style that pleases the musician in him. Collins loves swinging jazz, and here familiar tunes from his solo career and work with Genesis, including "That's All," "Against All Odds," "I Don't Care Anymore," and "Invisible Touch," are given the sonic heft and textural body that only a mighty big band can provide. Outfitted with snappy new arrangements that allow such featured soloists as saxophonist Gerald Albright to stretch out, these pop staples take on vibrant new life. Collins started out as a drummer, and his creative chops show through. Sitting behind his drum kit with the band, Collins also gets his kicks swinging through funk and jazz classics like "Pick Up the Pieces" and "Milestones." Half the fun of A HOT NIGHT IN PARIS is hearing Collins have fun.
