The album features gorgeous arrangements of Chansons, American Songbook standards and Bossa Nova classics. This Grammy nominated, multi-lingual artist holds the prestigious Chevalier Dans L'Ordre Des Arts et Des Lettres award, multiple BBC Jazz Awards for Jazz Vocalist of the Year, has album sales approaching 2 million, and Gold, Double-Gold and Platinum-selling albums that have reached a series of No. 1 chart positions during the span of her career. As part of a triumphant world tour, the platinum-selling artist returns to the Venetian Room for the first time since her two sold-out shows in 2015. "Stacey's singing never lets us forget these songs are about people. She has much in common with today's finest screen actors who, assured of the camera's ability to pick out detail, portray complex shades of personality, motive and feeling through subtle adjustments of face and posture....here's a great jazz diva of our age." - Kazuo Ishiguro "Ms. Kent embodied the essence of saudade as persuasively as any of her Brazilian idols. As she threw back her head and crooned softly, you had the sense of a woman with nothing to protect, living in the moment and dreaming out loud.’ - New York Times
