Stacey Kent mixes and matches moods on 'I Know I Dream' / Jazz Weekly

Bookmark and Share

Soft toned and bohemian vocalist Stacey Kent adds texture to her patented soft delivery by including an orchestra on this luscious album. The team of Jim Tomlinson/wwinds, Graham Harvey-p-key, John Paricelli/g, Jeremy Brown/b and Joshua Morrison/dr is augmented by rich and sensitive strings, making her voice team with Tomlinson's flute on "Double Rainbow" and "La Rua Madureira" to create flowing linen drapes of sound. She mixes and matches moods and arrangements, as her delicate delivery works well with the percussion on the upbeat "Make It Up" and glides over the organ on the soulful "Bullet Train," but for the most part she sashays to "Les Amour Perdues" and gets intimate and delicate on "I Know I Dream." Misty evenings.
