The 37th Annual Folly Jazz Series presents
Saturday, February 22nd at 8 PM
JazzTalk at 7 PM with MOLLY HAMMER
Stacey Kent brings her French, Italian, and German inspirations into her romantic music on her tour. With 7 best-selling albums, the 2001 British Jazz Award, and 2002 BBC Jazz Award (among many other awards), Stacey is an icon in romantic vocal jazz. Stacey is herself an avowed romantic, and the songs she sings are timeless stories that touch young and old alike, fulfilling a desire for sophisticated love songs that is not catered to by today’s pop music industry.
“Stacey Kent’s mezzo-soprano voice is a beautiful instrument for offsetting orchestral accompaniment, a fact that I KNOW I DREAM illustrates well. The orchestra, a 52-piece London studio assemblage, has a lushness that would smother Nelson Riddle – yet Kent cuts through it effortlessly.” – Michael J. West, Downbeat Magazine
