"Timeless, artless and utterly gorgeous." -- Time Out Magazine, London

"What raises it all to another level is the intensely romantic connection between the songer and her tenor saxophonist and husband, Jim Tomlinson.

Love is in the air." -- Stephen Holden, New York Times

Pour son dixième disque en autant d'années, le premier chez Blue Note, Stacey Kent continue d'affiner son jazz cool…Alors pourquoi bouder son plaisir? --VOIR (QUÉBEC)

 
Cet automne, Stacey Kent sera fort probablement la chanteuse de jazz qui vendra le plus de CD sur ce territoire.
LA PRESSE (QUÉBEC)

Cet album a été reçu comme un cadeau sur le plateau! Un coup de coeur, auquel nous prédisons un très bel avenir. C'est un album jazz, avec des notes un peu pop. La voix de Staycey Kent se fait mélodieuse et rassurante. Parfait pour les soirées d'automne.
TVA TV (QUÉBEC)

* * * * STARS La Consécration !
Son nouvel album est la preuve que son talent lui permet de s’exprimer de façon tout aussi convaincante en y allant de pièces originales (certaines signées par le parolier et écrivain britannique Kazuo Ishiguro) et un tantinet plus pop par moments
Le Soleil (Québec)

“A Kent ni siquiera le hace falta ser una bomba sensual al cantar; se basta y se sobra con su formidable fraseo, que permite captar cada detalle de su candorosa voz, y que es como una cola rápida cola: con un solo instante de escucha uno se queda pegado al altavoz. Si algo caracteriza a esta cantante es su gran intuición a la hora de encontrar el lugar perfecto para la introducción de matices, siempre contenidos y cristalinos”.ABC. 07-Nov-07

‘El purismo en cualquier cosa es potencialmente peligroso’.--SERRANO RUIZ, Ignacio

“Kent does not even need to be a sensual bomb when she sings; her fantastic phrasing is more than enough, and it permits the grasping of every detail of her innocent voice, that is like fast glue: with only an instant of listening you get stuck to the loudspeaker. If something characterizes this singer is her big intuition at the moment of finding the perfect place for the introduction of nuances, always self-controlled and crystalline”.

“Ella posee su propia identidad, una voz próxima, ingenua, sutil, cuyas influencias llegan a través del pop y el rock”.El Mundo. 08-Nov-07MARTÍNEZ, Javier: ‘Formamos un gran matrimonio’

"I sat through 'The Boy Next Door' at dead at night, with a silly grin on my face, sometimes shouting with joy,  sometimes applauding, sometimes vainly trying to swallow a lump in my throat. Everything about it -- the choice of songs, the musical interplay, the glorious voice -- leaves one searching for a more superlative word than ' greatest' ! -- Humphrey Lyttelton, BBC Radio 2

"A stunning ascension of intuitive, intimate snging in a voice as singular as there currently is--Jonathan Schwartz, National Public Radio, USA

(About THE BOY NEXT DOOR): Everything about it - the choice of songs, the musical interplay, the glorious voice - leaves one searching for a more superlative word than 'greatest'!"-- Humphrey Lyttelton, BBC Radio 2

All the hype about Kent is justified .... She is blessed with that magic given to very few singers -- Yorkshire Post

Incandescent on stage, Ms Kent love to sing so much, her glee is positively infectious -- San Francsico Examiner

An assured talent with a voice as natural and unblemished as spring water-- Sheffield Star

...a New Yorker who tops jazz polls ... the zing in her voice as she plays around with phrasing and meter on standards is too distinguished, too galvanising...Tomlinson's hot stuff, too, the marrieds make beautiful music together. What the Lunts were to the stage, these two could be to the Great American Songbook. -- David Finkle, Village Voice

...a young man proposed to his sweetie during one of her shows at The Algonquin...three women told Ms Kent they had each taken "Dreamsville" into the delivery room ... mothers send tales of toddlers who cry, "put Stacey on, put Stacey on..." -- Joanne Kaufman, The Wall Street Journal
