Tue 18 Jul, Main Stage
The acclaimed, Grammy-nominated singer Stacey Kent returns to Oxford Playhouse for an evening of songs from her 5-star new album and the jazz classics that made her name.
Since breaking into the jazz scene in 2003, Stacey has built a reputation as master interpreter of jazz standards, also able to turn her hand to unique collaborations with Booker Prize winning novelist Kazuo Ishiguro.
Last seen in Oxford in 2014, this a wonderful opportunity to hear one of the greatest voices in contemporary jazz as she plays songs from her latest album, the universallyloved Tenderly.
Deceptively simple, meticulously presented, each of the 12 tracks is a little gem. Kent’s soft, light voice is as persuasive as ever, and the playing is, of course, immaculate.
5 Stars Guardian on Tenderly
Stacey Kent has been sitting on top of the world of jazz vocals, for many years.
