Stacey Kent: A Shift in the Balance Between a Singer and Musicians

The more gently Ms. Kent's voice is caressed, the better she sounds, and on a good night, the standards she chooses slide from her lips like wonderful personal stories confided with the joy of a singer who believes in happy endings. Some of my most memorable nightclub evenings have been spent in the company of Ms. Kent and her husband, the tenor saxophonist Jim Tomlinson, as her sly, flirtatious singing and his subdued, murmuring horn share intimate pillow talk that recalls the glory days of bossa nova.
