After 8 studio albums, `Dreamer In Concert' is the first album that captures Stacey's magical onstage persona. From the stage of La Cigale, she delivers fresh interpretations of some of the most emblematic songs in her repertoire, including the standards of the Great American Songbook, The Best Is Yet To Come, They Can't Take That Away From Me, It Might As Well Be Spring and others. She also revisits the classic French songs, Ces Petits Riens, Samba Saravah and Jardin d'Hiver.
The repertoire also includes four previously unrecorded selections; two from Antônio Carlos Jobim, Waters of March and Dreamer, and two new compositions by her husband, saxophonist and the album's producer, Jim Tomlinson; Postcard Lovers, with lyrics by the novelist, Kazuo Ishiguro (author of Remains of the Day and Never Let Me Go) and O Comboio, penned by the Portuguese poet, Antonio Ladeira, which Stacey sings, beautifully, in Portuguese.
Parcel arrived within reasonable time and item was in perfect condition. Loved it!
Stacey's voice is soft and sophisticated. The repertoire is well chosen. Jazzy and mellow.
.....but this one is a bit mediocre. A few good tracks but just sounds too laid back for my tastePublished on 20 May 2013 by A Pittaway
Stacey Kent, refreshing find, although pieces are mainly covers, they are professionally done and what a sweet clear voice. Would definitely recommendPublished on 10 Mar. 2013 by Stephen Braithwaite
