Stacey Kent

STAR TRIBUNE + CITY PAGES PICK


“I Know, I Dream,” the latest album by the delicately elegant New Jersey-born, London-based jazz vocalist, is her first effort with an orchestra.

Jazz singer Stacey Kent doesn’t engage in showy power or theatrics. Instead her voice insinuates itself with sly sophistication, smart phrasing, and a keen sense of saudade, that bittersweet insouciance inherent in her favored Brazilian escapades. She also covers French chanson, Great American Songbook nuggets, and quirky charmers by husband/saxophonist Jim Tomlinson. All are on her latest, I Know I Dream: The Orchestral Sessions, a profusion of Riddlesque lushness that her voice adeptly tames. Here her quartet will focus on the Dream material. –RICK MASON
