"Stacey Kent - I Know I Dream The Orchestral Sessions"

With more than two million albums sold and a Grammy nomination to her credit, the US-British jazz singer Stacey Kent is one of the most successful artists in her genre. Since achieving her international breakthrough some ten years ago with «Breakfast on the Morning Tram», Stacey Kent has been mentioned in the same br eath as Diana Krall and Norah Jones as one of the gr eat divas of contemporary jazz. Her trademarks area fine sense for rhythm and a beautiful, haunting voice. With the programme «I know I dream», Stacey Kent made one of her dreams come true: releasing her first recording with a full orchestra. It features French chansons from her favourite core repertoire, new compositions and cover versions of timeless Brazilian hits. A self-portrait in magisterial yet emotive sounds, exhilarating yet intimate – it could have been made for the Plugged-In series!
