This review is from: Love Is...The Tender Trap (Audio CD)
This review is much belated, as I first became aware of Stacey Kent on the Michael Parkinson show, singing the title track of this CD, on it's release, in front of a big band.
It is no secret that Parky loves Big Bands, and this one was probably conducted by Laurie Holloway.
It was a surprise when I immediately bought the CD and discovered no Big Band, just the small group of (superlative) musicians that accompany her on all her recordings (since changed for Breakfast on the morning tram).
While I thoroughly enjoy all of Stacey Kent's CDs, I can't help but hanker for one CD, or even a couple of tracks, to be with a Big Band. I can't imagine why Mr Parkinson has not been able to persuade her to do it, even if it is just for him.
I'm writing this in the review section, as there seems to be no earthly way of conveying feedback to Ms Kent directly.
To all of those introduced to her when she sang 'Tender Trap' on Parkinson and enjoyed the band, here's an opportunity to throw your tuppence worth in too.
