4.0 out of 5 stars Playful and relaxed., Jan. 11 2007
This review is from: Lyricec Stacey Kent (Audio CD)
Even with hubby in the limelight, Stacy Kent still steals the show.

Saxophone player Jim Tomlinson is Stacey Kent's partner both in a personal and a professional capacity. So, when recording his latest solo album, it was a logical step to call upon his wife's vocal talents as the cutting edge of an intimate small band set.

"The Lyric" is a wonderful journey through a selection of classic jazz standards.

Stacey Kent and Jim Tomlinson fit together hand in glove and on "My Heart Belongs To Daddy", "If I Were A Bell", "Something Happens To Me" and "Cockeyed Optimist", her sublime vocals and his lush tenor are a delight.

Stacey is relaxed, playful and has never sounded better.

The stand-out track is the lightly buttered bossa nova of Antonio Jobim's "Corcovado" which sounds as good as the famed Getz/Gilberto version from 1963.

Tomlinson also purrs through two instrumentals - Manha De Carnival and Outra Vez - like a well-fed cat. An essential purchase for all Stacey's fans.
