I loved Stacey Kent's first few albums with Candid. They introduced me to some great jazz standards. Her selections of the standards she wanted to do were smart and her interpretations of them were fresh, new, and whether you heard the old standards or not you'd think these songs were her own. The musicians that backed her up were top notch. She's got a lovely voice with good diction. As an old fan, I would recommend buying Close Your Eyes, Love is the Tender Trap and Let Yourself Go. That's when I think her music was still fresh. Beyond that, you'll just continue to hear more renditions of old standards that are good listening, etc. but get bored fast. I wished that after her first three albums that she would go in a new direction and do something original and new that she, her band, or her husband who plays in her band wrote. But, I'm not holding my breath. I'm dismayed that she's going the route so many musicians go once they've made it or got everyones' attention. This is just another mini-boxed set. Stacy please go out and do something new. I beg you. You have so much talent!
