The concert will be a chance for fans to hear Stacey's latest album, ‘I Know I dream: The Orchestral Sessions’, which has been critically acclaimed for its breathtaking beauty and assured expressiveness. Along with tracks from her new album, the jazz virtuoso will be
performing some of her much-loved American Standards, Bossa Nova
classics and French Chansons, as well as songs she collaborated on with
Nobel Prize-winning author Kazuo Ishiguro.
Stacey's latest album follows 'Tenderly' (2015), an intimate
collaboration with Brazilian music master, Roberto Menescal; 'The Changing Lights' (2013); all-French,
'Raconte-moi' (2010); and the Platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated,
'Breakfast on the Morning Tram' (2007).
Stacey’s time in London actually began when she enrolled in a graduate
music programme at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, where she
met her future husband and musical partner, Jim Tomlinson. Today,
Stacey’s repertoire includes a number of songs written for her by
husband Jim, with various lyricists including Ishiguro.
After graduating in the 90s, Stacey began her career singing regularly at Café Boheme in Soho. Within two years, she was performing as the opening act for established artists at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club in London (also a stop on her 2019 London tour). Stacey’s return to London will provide a rare opportunity for UK fans see her 'live' in concert.
