I have all CDs by Stacey Kent, and cherish them all. However, this CD is my hot favourite.
She had no formal training to be a jazz singer, and she learnt all the techniques by herself. And I think this works extremely well for her style. I'm afraid I am not found of the singers who are blasé about their technique - the singers who sing with the vibe that shouts 'I-am-so-good-at-singing-ain't-I'.
She is modest, and you can tell from her singing that she sings each song only because she loves them.
if you haven't listen to any of her works before, and want to have an album that surrounds you like a pleasant breeze, I think this CD is a good starting point. "Dreamsville" is the sweetest of her all opus.
On a warm summer evening, open the windows, and play this CD. I hope you will enjoy the moment.
