Sit back and luxuriate as Stacey's voice gently and lovingly caresses your ears from the breathy opening of "I've Got A Crush" all way through to the sentimental "Thanks for the memory"
Enjoy with the lights down low and in the company of someone you love.
What raises Stacey above the rest is her perfect diction and phrasing - every word and syllable is lovingly delivered in Ms Kent's unique style. The result is simply pure magic. I cannot think of any other modern female vocalist who makes you feel that she is singing just for you.
Dreamsville is the perfect tonic for anyone searching for great songs sung by a great artist and backed by five top class musicians.
"Hushabye Mountain" and "Under a Blanket of Blue" are just two of the highlights, and listen out for Colin Oxley's delightful guitar work on the "Dreamsville" track.
You'll want to play this treasure over and over. Dreams can come true!
Dreamsville lives up to her live performances; rare on a studio record. Her voice has dynamic range and superb phrasing in numbers one knows well. The only thing that is perhaps missing is her interaction with her band (who are incidentally superb in their own right) and particularly with her husband on tenor sax and flute (a difficult jazz instrument but used here hauntingly on the title track).
As the ads say about lesser products: if you only buy one female Jazz singer CD this year (or as a Chrissie Pressie) then do your hi-fi system and your ears a favour and make it this one.
She had no formal training to be a jazz singer, and she learnt all the techniques by herself. And I think this works extremely well for her style. I'm afraid I am not found of the singers who are blasé about their technique - the singers who sing with the vibe that shouts 'I-am-so-good-at-singing-ain't-I'.
She is modest, and you can tell from her singing that she sings each song only because she loves them.
if you haven't listen to any of her works before, and want to have an album that surrounds you like a pleasant breeze, I think this CD is a good starting point. "Dreamsville" is the sweetest of her all opus.
On a warm summer evening, open the windows, and play this CD. I hope you will enjoy the moment.
