Dreamer in Concert (2012)


Featuring performances of Great American Songbook standards "The Best Is Yet to Come," "They Can't Take That Away from Me," and "It Might as Well Be Spring" alongside classic French chansons "Ces Petits Riens," "Samba Saravah," and "Jardin d'Hiver," Dreamer in Concert is the first live album from Grammy-nominated New Jersey jazz singer Stacey Kent. Recorded at La Cigale in Paris in May 2011, the 13-track collection also includes four previously unrecorded songs, including covers of Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Water of March" and "Dreamer," and two new compositions co-penned by saxophonist husband Jim Tomlinson with author Kazuo Ishiguro ("Postcard Lovers") and Portuguese poet Antonio Ladeira ("O Comboio"). ~ Jon O'Brien
