Stacey Kent


New York indigenous Stacey Kent by no means anticipated a profession in jazz music: she was a Sarah Lawrence graduate having a level in comparative literature. But her child years days spent hearing the original beauty of Frank Sinatra and Nat Ruler Cole undoubtedly affected her. While on christmas in European countries after graduating from university, she used singing without very much formal training rather than looked back again. Kent became familiar with many music artists at Oxford in 1991, and through them she discovered herself taking part in a jazz training course on the famed Guildhall College of Music and Dilemma. There she also fulfilled her husband to be, tenor saxophonist Jim Tomlinson, and arrived a spot within the course. Her following post was performing using the Vile Physiques Swing Orchestra on the Ritz Resort in London, which resulted in a job in Ian McKellen’s Richard III film, playing a big-band vocalist. The middle-’90s were even more focused on documenting and in 1996, Kent inked a cope with Candid Information. A year afterwards, the critically acclaimed Close Your Eye was issued; Sensitive Trap implemented in 1999. Her third LP, Allow Yourself Move: Celebrating Fred Astaire, which showcased well-known standards, premiered in springtime 2000. The ballad-oriented Dreamsville came the next springtime. She also documented an recording with Tomlinson entitled Lyric, and made an appearance on Blue Notice for a number of albums through the 2000s. This year 2010, Kent released the all-French recording Raconte-Moi, which continued to achieve precious metal status both in France and Germany. The live recording Dreamer in Concert — documented in the La Cigale in Paris — got in 2011. 2 yrs later, Kent came back using the Changing Lights. Influenced by her like of Brazilian music, the recording saw her dealing with Portuguese poet Antonio Ladeira and French lyricist Bernie Beaupère.
