AllMusic Review by

Delta's World Lounge series continues with World Lounge: Cafe Paris, a double-disc set of vocal and instrumental lounge music with the élan of a Parisian coffeehouse. Overall, the collection is more authentic than some of the other volumes of the series, offering versions of French standards like "J'Attendrai," "Coraline," "Lili Marlene," "Hymne a l'Amour," "Moulin Rouge," and "Mademoiselle de Paris." While it doesn't feature any performances by well-known chanteuses such as Edith Piaf, the set does do a capable job of re-creating a bit of the City of Lights' sophistication.
