Stacey Kent

Critically acclaimed, GRAMMY nominated singer, Stacey Kent, sings from the soul, telling her stories with faultless phrasing and a lucid, enchanting voice. Stacey and her quartet return to Birdland to celebrate the launch of her new album, "I KNOW I DREAM: The Orchestral Sessions," (SONY) Stacey's first orchestral album and her most ambitious to date. The rich musical tapestry contrasts with her previous intimate collaboration with Brazilian music master Roberto Menescal, "Tenderly," (2015 SONY) and the exuberant, "Marcos Valle & Stacey Kent Live." Stacey's other recent albums include the Brazilian-flavored, "The Changing Lights," (Warner), "Dreamer In Concert," the GRAMMY nominated, platinum-selling, "Breakfast on the Morning Tram," (2007) and all-French, "Raconte-moi," (2009). Throughout her career, Stacey's band has partnered with Jim Tomlinson (sax) whose songwriting partnership with Nobel Prize-winning novelist Kazuo Ishiguro has come to form an essential plank in her distinctive repertoire.

Named for alto saxophonist and jazz pioneer Charlie "Bird" Parker who dubbed it "The Jazz Corner of the World," Birdland opened on December 15th 1949. For 60 years it has been home to jazz legends, from Parker, John Coltrane Duke Ellington and Count Basie to Oscar Peterson, Hank Jones, Diana Krall and everyone in between. The original 52nd street location was a cultural barometer and meeting place, inspiring the songs "Birdland" and "Lullaby of Birdland," and serving as a regular haunt for celebrities and cultural figures. The modern incarnation is a state of the art nightclub featuring award winning Southern and Cajun cuisine, first rate sound and lighting and a who's who of contemporary musical artists, 7 nights a week.
