Stacey Kent


1968-born American jazz singer Stacey Kent revisits Istanbul for 3 back-to-back performances at Salon.


One of the world’s foremost jazz vocalists, Kent has a charming, elegant, romantic style and a crystal clear voice that’s as captivating as it is entertaining.  She boasts 8 best-selling albums including the Grammy nominated Breakfast on the Morning Tram (2007), and numerous awards such as the 2001 British Jazz Award and the 2002 BBC Jazz Award for ‘Best Vocalist’.


Three-time Oscar-winning songwriter, Jay Livingston, has written of her, ‘Stacey Kent is a revelation. There is nobody singing today who can compare with her. She has the style of the greats, like Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald. And she sings the words like Nat Cole - clean, clear and almost conversational with perfect phrasing. And that's as good as it gets.’


Do not miss her heart-felt interpretations of jazz classics as well as numbers from her latest album Dreamer in Concert (2012).
