Stacey Kent's unique brand of poetry and music,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Changing Lights (New) (Audio CD)
I love Stacey Kent's blend of almost-monologue delivery of some of her songs, which I first heard on the album 'Breakfast on the Morning Train' and which she develops more fully here. Her command of European vernacular widens to include Spanish songs as well as French (at which she also excels) and this album is a lovely combination of all the strengths and originality of Stacey's approach to what is partly jazz, partly classic popular, with the European overtones which make her renditions extra special. A thoroughly enjoyable album to be relished in the quiet of the library or music room (or corner of the sitting room, away from distraction). Not recommended for the car as its subtle and low delivery is spoilt by engine noise. Listen alone and enjoy a unique relationship with this unique singer.
