Product Description

Amazon.ca

Stacey Kent has given jazz singing a huge fillip in the last two years. She has swiftly become the favourite of musicians and ordinary listeners alike. Her work has also defined the field, for she is not aiming, as are most other singers, at a "cabaret" or "night club" audience. Stacey Kent is a committed jazz singer as were Lee Wiley and Billie Holiday before her. She also has musical qualities in common with those two. This album is made up entirely of ballads, the singer's forté, and this far-sighted idea pays off generously. Her versions of these classics are awash with ingenious invention and her inspired timing is unique. It was an imaginative idea to put the verse of "I've Got A Crush On You" in the middle of the song instead of at the beginning. But that sort of thinking abounds in an album that is destined to become a classic. Miss Kent has the advantage of superior accompaniment, provided by her husband Jim Tomlinson on reeds and by the Dave Newton Trio. --Steve Voce

Review

...Dreamsville is a superb addition to an already highly distinguished series of albums by one of the finest intepreters of a song since Ella Fitzgerald. -- BBC Music Magazine, January 2000

5.0 out of 5 stars I love Stacey Nov. 18 2003
Format:Audio CD
What can I say, I love Stacey Kent. There is something about her voice, the way the wraps around a song just makes you feel good. The song " You are there" is worth the price of this CD alone. Buy this CD. You wont be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A synthesis Feb. 25 2002
Format:Audio CD
Stacey Kent is a glorious synthesis of all the best sweet and smooth singers on the jazz history: Billie, Mildred Bailey, Doris Day, Helen Carr, Lucy Ann Polk, Beverly Kenney, Julie Wilson, Joanie Sommers etc.
.'Dreamsville'is a pearl, a masterpiece full of intimate renditions. Backgrounded by a small group of excellent players - where her husband Jim Tomlinson brights with his saxophone that sounds like a mixture of Lester Young with Stan Getz - Stacey sings with a particular enunciation. She is the most original voice in jazz from many years but what is important is the pleasure when we hear her. I would like to repeat: she is the best jazz singer today!

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! Dec 31 2001
Format:Audio CD
It took me a while to get turned on to Stacey Kent, because she doesn't get nearly the hype that Diana Krall and now Jane Monheit get (Krall deserves it, Monheit needs to grow as a singer before she will). But having heard Dreamsville, I'm excited to have found a new artist to add to my playlist. First, there is that voice: sweet yet breathy and seductive. Add to that the fact that she knows how to truly sing, not just exhibit her vocal skills (something Monheit desperately needs to learn). Kent makes each song her own, yet does it in such a way that the song retains its identity. There's not a weak link on this CD, but for me, "Hushabye Mountain" stands out as a showcase of Kent's ability to breathe emotion into a song. Be warned, however: if you're one of those people who think Krall's "The Look of Love" is "boring" because "all the songs sound the same" (i.e. because there's no "Hit That Jive Jack") then this album may be a bit above your musical appreciation skills.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dreamsville Sept. 29 2001
Format:Audio CD
I was privilaged enough to see Stacy Kent live in London's Ronnie Scotts club, Stacy Kent and her band were simply in a class of their own. I think she should be played on all the radio stations out there, for all true music lovers.
