Product Description

Product Description

"Stacey Kent is a singer to match the greats of the past, with an unusual power to hold your attention and control your enotions from the first note." So said author Kazuo Ishiguro, one of a dozen authors who have chosen to take Stacey's discs onto BBCRadio 4's Desert Island and one of the millions of music fans who have fallen under her musical spell. Until recently she was everyone's favourite 'secret' - now she sells out wherever she plays and has world-wide record sales well into the hundred's ofthousands, with celebrities such as Bill Gates, Patrick Vieira and Clint Eastwood inviting her to play for them. No surprise that she picked up the BBC Radio Jazz Singer Of The Year award. This collection comprises 12 tracks taken from three ofher five Candid albums plus the previously unreleased All Too Soon, by Duke Ellington and Carl Sigman, and is sure to be a hit with long-time fans and new listeners alike."ONE OF THE FINEST SINGERS TO HAVE APPEARED IN THE LAST FOUR DECADES. THE DEPTH, SUBTELTY, EMOTIONAL SHADING AND IRREPRESSIBLE SWING THAT SHE BRINGS TO EVERY SONG MARKS HER OUT AS SOMETHING SPECIAL." - THE GUARDIAN.

5.0 out of 5 stars stacey kent "collection" 9 Dec 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Yet again the sensual tones of Miss Kent are let loose over a varied choice of her works,only this time in a much tighter compilation,her tone and pitch really are in a class of their own,she delivers this,the latest in a line of magical cd's,with as much,if not more, sensual expression.She really does make you feel as if she is singing just for you! In short,if you know her you'll love this,if you don't, try her and you'll be hooked.
Enjoy

5.0 out of 5 stars I think I'm in love... 13 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If she wasn't married, and if it wasn't a nasty thing to do, I'd stalk her by being at every performance she ever does! Gad, what skill. If you are keen to hear what I believe is the absolute best in a female vocalist (maybe only tied with Diana Krall-a tough call) then make sure you collect this album, and all the others she's done! This lady will reside in history with Vaughan, Holiday, O'Day, Lee, etc. Her old man, by the way, Jim Tomlinson, got to be one lucky fella, apart from being an arranger and musician that seems to bring out the best in Stacey.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stacey and Standards: A Charming Listening Journey 6 April 2008
By Rebecca*rhapsodyinblue* - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"If there is one theme that runs through Stacey's music, it is that of romance. Stacey herself an avowed romantic and the songs she sings are timeless stories that touch young and old alike, fulfilling a desire for sophisticated love songs that is not catered to by today's music industry... With an appeal that transcends category, it is clear that Stacey's voice sells itself. To hear her is to love her." ~ Liner Notes ~

Together with her fabulous band, Stacey Kent, a world-class jazz singer who has made a big wave in the jazz scene since the release of her first album, Close Your Eyes, brings a whole new approach to a dozen of standards in this Limited Edition CD, "Collection" making them sparkle all throughout. Her voice provides brilliance to the flawless instrumentation of her husband, saxophonist Jim Tomlinson, who does an almost Stan Getz-esque performances on all the tracks. The splendid musicianship is simply the result of a great teamwork from husband-and-wife/musical partners Kent and Tomlinson, David Newton and John Pearce (piano), Colin Oxley (guitar), Andy Cleyndert, Simon Thorpe and Dave Green (bass), Steve Brown and Jeff Hamilton (drums).

As an opener, Kent swings elegantly in "Comes Love," an engaging number that she tackles with ease and buoyancy making it a top favorite from this awesome collection. She continues her swingin' mood as she sings Johnny Mercer and Rube Bloom's "Day In Day Out" and two of Cole Porter staples, "In The Still of the Night" and "It's Delovely."

I love the way she treats "They Can't Take That Away From Me" with a much calculated but very charming reading of its lyrics, which include the seldom-heard verse that she renders in the midst the song instead of the usual intro. This Gershwin song is presented here enchantingly with emphasis on its beautiful guitar work by Colin Oxley - this would have made the famous brothers beam with pride. And any fan of Irving Berlin music will surely notice that Ira Gershwin had made reference to a line of one of Berlin's remarkable songs, "The Song Is Ended (But The Melody Lingers On").

Kent also adds an elegant accent to this rare collection with a previously unreleased track, Duke Ellington and Carl Sigman's "All Too Soon," which highlights the sweepingly beautiful sax solo of Tomlinson, one of my favorite saxophonists of all-time. Irving Berlin's "Isn't This A Lovely Day?" is also a delightful listen and so with Fred Coots and Haven Gillespie's "You Go To My Head" where her vocal artistry is more striking with a sole piano accompaniment by David Newton. Another stunner is "East of the Sun (And West of the Moon") with its breathtaking Bossa Nova arrangement.

What makes this CD so special and very highly recommended? It is a rare compilation of the best of the best from all her recordings prior to this 2002 Limited Edition Gold Disc by Candid Productions in London, England. It has a strong material, impeccable interpretations and splendid musicianship. In short, sheer beauty and perfection.

P.S. For more delightful listens, please check these out: Close Your Eyes, In Love Again - The Music of Richard Rodgers, Love Is...The Tender Trap, Dreamsville, The Boy Next Door, Let Yourself Go: Celebrating Fred Astaire and her very latest CD as well, Breakfast on the Morning Tram.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must-Have for SK Fans!!! 26 Dec 2003
By Andy Tan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
SK's collection of some her finest songs all in one album!

What more can anyone ask for?
If you haven't heard her before, this is a great mother of all albums to sample her vocal versatility and that sweet sweet voice of hers, from the soothing opening "I've Got A Crush On You" to the delightful "S'Wonderful".

And don't forget to look out for SK Collection II which will certainly turn anyone to an ardent fan together with this Collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stacey is just Fantastic.....A Jewel....in a CD. 3 April 2009
By Gary J. Chenett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When I see a CD that says Stacey Kent, I buy it, It's so simple,
She makes it simple to find great , unique and killer jazz and blues,
I will differ with the title traditional pop.
This lady is her own person and her voice passes up being close to traditional and never pop........
She is 100% Jazz and Blues, She mixes them well and her voice is unmistakable....
I can pick it up easily from another car if I am sitting at a stop light and I can't see it, She goes with the wind , on the wind and with her heart....Unmistakeably Fine.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a Must Have 9 Oct 2007
By P. L. Lim - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
For the fans of Stacey Kent you know what to expect from her voice and her phrasing. It is simply superb. But I found this collection problematic with the recording of the songs. The recording did not show off the vibrancy of her voice, in fact, tended to muffle it. Certainly it could not accomodate the pyrotechnics her voice she can do with her voice. I was very disappointed and much more because the price of the cd was quite expensive.
