Although she hails from New Jersey, sublime jazz vocalist Stacey Kent evokes a sophisticated European vibe. Kent's understated voice relies on sly, elegant phrasing and an ability to convey complex emotions with subtle charm and clarity, while her arrangements, most by husband/saxophonist Jim Tomlinson, gracefully work the edges of those emotions. Case in point is the exquisitely wistful reading of Rodgers & Hammerstein's standard "It Might As Well Be Spring" on her first live album, Dreamer in Concert, recorded at La Cigale in Paris. It slides from melancholy to optimism on her knowing vocals and Tomlinson's breezy sax solo. The rest of the set ranges from lilting sambas to French chanson to Great American Songbook nuggets.
Wednesdays, Thursdays, 7 p.m. Starts: Feb. 13. Continues through Feb. 14, 2013
