Editorial Reviews

Tenderly marks, for Stacey Kent, a return to the Great American Songbook for which she first became known. The performances on Tenderly are clearly on another level to those of her earlier standards albums. There is a natural ease and confidence in the minimalist approach that she has honed over the years. Not a single extraneous note or gesture disturbs her daringly exposed performances. The pure and quiet intensity of these interpretations reveals both the song and the artist with astonishing vividness. Along with the title song, the album features such classics as Tangerine, That s All and Gershwin s Embraceable You.



American singer, Stacey Kent, is an artist who is so hard to categorize, she almost deserves a category to herself. A sublime interpreter of the Great American Songbook, Chanson and Bossa Nova, whose repertoire extends well beyond her jazz roots, fluent in French and Portuguese, she doesn t so much transcend genre as much as render the idea redundant. Each element of her personal sound is so perfectly integrated that one never feels as if she is crossing any boundaries of genre. Her 2007 album, Breakfast on the Morning Tram, achieved platinum status and was nominated for a Grammy Award®. She s won countless other awards including Jazz Vocalist of the Year at the 2001 BBC Jazz Awards and French Chevalier Dans L Ordre Des Arts et Des Lettres in 2010.

It's unbelievable that I've been listening to this album, "Tenderly," Stacey Kent's latest recording which is a total winner for many days now since I got it from the mail. And I absolutely love it and enjoy every minute each time I listen. Every track is a wonderful winner from "Only Trust Your Heart" to "If I Had You." How could an ardent music lover like me not love this recording when there are so many charms about it?

Stacey Kent nailed it again! She "tenderly" aced her interpretations of all the tracks in this album of American and Brazilian standards. She is backed by a trio of exceptional musicians namely Roberto Menescal on guitar, Jeremy Brown on double bass and Jim Tomlinson on tenor saxophone and alto flute.

According to Stacey Kent and Roberto Menescal, this album represents "her return to the Great American Songbook and his return to the jazz roots that inspired that young guitarist in the heyday of the Bossa Nova years." Stacey Kent herself is a big fan of Bossa Nova and she has beautifully recorded some Bossa Nova staples.

I never really thought of the great talent that Roberto Menescal possess in guitar until I've listened to this album in its entirety. He has used all the resources of his favorite instrument to the fullest. I now consider him as one of the greatest and most notable guitarists the music world has ever known. He is not only an outstanding musician but also a composer, record producer and one of the founders of Bossa Nova music. In 2014, the Latin Grammy Awards bestowed upon him the highest award given to any musician, Lifetime Achievement Award.

Jim Tomlinson has been one of my favorite musicians of all-time whose artistry in tenor saxophone is almost like that of Stan Getz.

The moment I heard Stacey Kent’s rendition of “Thou Swell” (In Love Again, 2002) I became a fan.
(Thank you Donny McKethan, “The Great American Songbook”- WPFW 89.3 FM; Washington DC)
Everything the critics say of her singing (pure pitch, perfect phrasing, intimacy that makes the listener feel as if being sung to alone) are present in that track, in that CD, and in every other recording I have heard of hers since.
Couple this with superb song selection, terrific arrangements, brilliant yet unobtrusive accompaniment, and high production values, her recordings are easy to consider irresistible
It is with this enthusiasm that I willingly took a head first dive & pre-ordered her latest (and not yet officially released) CD, “Tenderly”.
Accompanying Ms. Kent’s vocals are Roberto Menescal (guitar), Jim Tomlinson (tenor sax & alto flute), and Jeremy Brown (double bass)
The songs chosen for this session are (but for one Menescal composition) American Jazz Standards & absolutely my cup of tea; and of course perfectly suited to Ms. Kent’s strong suit.
So what are we waiting for?
Let the music begin
There's that voice I’ve been expecting, only better.
It is soft yet strong, delicate of diction, with neither a strident syllable nor a wavered tone, and of course most perfect pitch.
Track 1 leaves me wanting track 2, and beyond.
But as the tracks progress it’s becomes disturbing to realize something is amiss.
She has no presence.
Stacey Kent, the raison d’etre for this recording, (and for my existence at this particular moment), has no presence!
Not believing this could be true I swapped CD players, swapped amps, played with balance and tone & checked phasing; all to no avail.

Although I enjoy all her work, i prefer when she makes a cd of standards like this. The Changing lights and breakfast on the morning tram have some wonderful songs and are indeed great cd's but they don't hold a candle to this one! This music just seems to float through the air with ease and grace. Her voice is impeccable! I love No Moon At All (Julie London's version) and was so glad to hear Stacey cover it! So mellow and romantic, a perfect Valentine's cd!

Wow... It's Stacey at her best with her pitch perfect voice and wonderful phasing. Making music with Roberto Menescal couldn't be more delightful. He ranks among the great guitarist and his jazz guitar makes Tenderly a truly exceptional jazz album. Like all Stacey and Jim Tomlinson's albums, it is all about the music and the blending of great vocal and instrumental performances. Bravo!

Tenderly is another excellent recording by Stacey Kent. Without percussion, it is a quiet album that establishes a relaxed mood and sticks with it. Though much is made of the participation of Roberto Menescal, I was more impressed by guitarist John Parricelli on Changing Lights. I also would have liked to hear more from Jim Tomlinson. But these are minor quibbles; I enjoyed every song.

I'm a big Stacey and Jim fan, and although their last album of original material was quite good, I think they are at their best doing their version of the great standards. Stacey brings a lovely, lower smokiness to her voice in a few of the tracks, and I think it is the best she has ever sounded. Jim's seamless, smooth-as-silk sax solos are highlighted throughout, and I can't get enough of them. If you just turned the lights down low, poured a couple of drinks, and want something romantic to listen and dance to, this CD would be an excellent choice.
