I thought 'Midnight in Paris' was more upbeat, fun, the sets and location of Paris were also grander than the grubby streets of LA.

None of those qualities really indicate a superior film though, just a different tonal approach!
I don't think there's much value in definitively stating "this is better than..." and I really enjoyed Midnight in Paris. But it also felt like a rethread of several of Allen's previous films - most notably the likes of Purple Rose of Cairo and Zelig. Blue Jasmine felt fresher - the one thing I will happily state is that it departs more significantly from his pre-established formulae than pretty much anything he has made in the 2000s.
Except Match Point and Cassandra's Dream, but they were differing degrees of rubbish.
