Live at Palladium (Warner, 2008)

This double-CD/DVD album is a recording of one of the concerts that took place at Warsaw's Palladium Club during Aga Zaryan's 2008 concert tour on which she was joined by musicians who flew in from Los Angeles for the occasion. Aga opted for a somewhat atypical and rather delicate-sounding combination of instruments for the project: guitar, double bass, and percussion. The personnel were guitarist Larry Koonse, bassist Darek Oleszkiewicz, and Darryl Jackson on various percussion instruments.

The main body of the repertoire was composed of songs from the albums “Picking Up the Pieces” and “My Lullaby”, some of them with completely new arrangements that took shape over the course of the tour. The album is recognized as having truly captured the exceptional mood of these concerts, and highlights Zaryan's fluid ease in performance. Several of the pieces are sung as duets, to the accompaniment of just double bass.

The album was welcomed as quintessential jazz and a commercial success, earning triple platinum status.
