With her album sales measured in millions, Stacey Kent is one of the great success stories in modern jazz. Her multi-lingual abilities allow her to record in various languages and she has appeared in over fifty countries. Her appeal is global and it is her vocal ability which has taken her to these heights. Her voice is light but commands attention with her ability to engage and communicate the narratives of love and regret, often in a simple and minimalist manner.

This album came about as a result of the material used in her live sets. Often that material had not been formally recorded. In response to audience requests, those songs have been arranged and recorded on Summer Me, Winter Me.

The album includes two original songs written by Cliff Goldmacher and Kent’s husband, Jim Tomlinson. Tomlinson also arranged all the tracks as well as playing tenor saxophone, flutes, clarinet, percussion and keyboards. The rest of the tracks are jazz standards with the exception of one track which has lyrics by Nobel Prize-winning author, Kazuo Ishiguro. The album was recorded over three sessions with different piano, bass and drum trios. There is also a string quartet on one track. ―
