5.0 out of 5 stars The best relaxing, listening sound for some time
Feel Good - Classic FM

The voice of Stacey Kent has such a soothing, calming effect that one cannot help but relax. Her phrasing is very creative and you`ll want to listen over and over!

1.0 out of 5 stars The boy next door
went to see stacey at grayes asembly hall on this tour.
Another fantastic gig bit spoiled by the no beer no smoking policy,What is jazz without alchohol and nicotine. Absolutely fantastically tight set, she must do a live album. Hot summer nights will never be the same after the bands rendition of "too damn hot" and if you dont smile at ooh shoo be dooey you aint...

5.0 out of 5 stars "Wish I was the Boy Next Door", 6 April 2011

Plenty of tracks on here to indulge yourself. Stacey and her husband Jim can do no wrong. This is superb stuff, good production, good recording and her voice is just so, so sexy! If you like laid back jazz vocal - buy it!

I saw this great jazz singer life in Norwich and she was just fantastic and the CD has the same clear and great sound.
If you are a audiophile nut like me you will really enjoy the sound of this cd.
ENJOY

5.0 out of 5 stars Stacey Kent's Best Yet, 3 Nov. 2003
By 
Murray Paxton (Reading, Berkshire United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Boy Next Door (Audio CD)
Just when you thought she could not do better Stacey pulls this one out of the bag. It's a departure from the normal formula but takes her voices places you would not expect.
Jim and the band are, as always superb and the production values so exceptional, they jump out of the speakers!
This lovely mix of material combined with Stacey's voice transport to a magical place where you are completely relaxed and de-stressed.

Stacey sings like an angel and has superb backing from her saxophonist husband and his band. Especially nice if you like the old standards.

This album is a delight from start to finish. A glorious voice and classy interpretations ... definitely not just jazzy background music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Low-key late-night cure for insomnia, 18 Jun. 2004

This review is from: The Boy Next Door (Audio CD)
Stacey Kent is another of Michael Parkinson's favourites; hardly a Sunday goes by without him playing something of hers. This album is dubbed "a collection of songs associated with some of Stacey's (male) musical heroes" and, helpfully, the liner notes mark against each track which hero is associated, from "The Best Is Yet To Come" (Tony Bennett) to "Bookends" (Paul Simon). (You could argue with some of the attributions, but I'll skip that here.)
They are all lovely, standard songs, subtley arranged for a jazz quintet to give a intimate, cozy, late bar or jazz club atmosphere - this is no big band bash. Stacey's is not the most musical voice I've ever heard, and she treats these songs in a very subdued, low key way, almost as if she's singing to herself. There's certainly little emotion given, the nearest she comes to raising the vocal tone is towards the end of "All I Do Is Dream Of You", attributed, ironically, to Dean Martin.
The result is an album that's great for playing very late at night, when it doesn't matter if you fall asleep, or perhaps if you can't get to sleep, because the chances are you soon will. It's nice, just a little too zzzz...

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab fab fab, 11 Oct. 2003
This review is from: The Boy Next Door (Audio CD)
I bought this at Ronnie Scotts when she played there at the end of August. A generous helping of wonderful standards, added to by Stacey's unique sprinkling of magic dust. For existing fans: you won't be disappointed. For first-timers: you'll be overjoyed to discover Stacey and to realise that there is much more where this came from!
