5.0 out of 5 stars Stacey just keeps on producing the goods, 12 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Changing Lights (Audio CD)
Stacey's last studio album, 'Raconte-moi', was a massive risk which paid off in spades. Let's face it, releasing an album which only contains songs sung in French was a very brave thing to do. How many other musicians at the height of their careers, jazz or otherwise, would do such a thing? But 'Raconte-moi' is a beautiful album & is one of my favourites from 2010. So just when I thought Stacey had released the perfect album out she comes with yet another: 'The Changing Lights'. What I love about this, her tenth, album is the return of the Stacey Kent, Jim Tomlinson, Kazuo Ishiguro partnership. They first collaborated on Stacey's wonderful 2007 album, 'Breakfast on the Morning Tram'. And on 'The Changing Lights' Stacey's crystal vocals, Jim's beautiful arrangements, and Kazuo's narrative-style lyrics are a joy to behold on tracks such as 'The Summer We Crossed Europe In The Rain' and 'The Changing Lights'. "The Changing Lights' has now replaced 'Breakfast on the Morning Tram' as my favourite Stacey Kent track. Yes, it is that good.

I recently went to see Stacey at Ronnie Scott's in London. It was a fabulous night. Stacey has such a great band of musicians backing her and the camaraderie amongst them was a joy to behold. Long may it continue to produce excellent albums such as this.
