On October 19th and 20th, at the Stockholm Jazz Festival, Artipelag will host the American jazz singer and world artist Stacey Kent, and saxophonist Jim Tomlinson. Some musicians develop successful collaborations over time but Stacey Kent and Jim Tomlinson have has a strange chemistry since the very beginning: as if they were corresponding pieces in a musical puzzle.

Over a 20-year career, success has been great. A series of award-winning albums led to a rich and varied expression that reached its zenith on the latest album I know I dream – awarded the Jazz Vocal Album of the Year at the 2018 Jazz Japan Awards. In this album (which was seven years in the making), Stacey and Jim offer up an orchestra palate filled with bossanova, iconic sounds, and new songs composed by Jim Tomlinson with, amongst others, Nobel Prize-winner Kazuno Ishiguro.

Friday October 19th at 7 pm (only a few tickets left)

After signing on with the recognized Blue Note Jazz Club in 2007, their creations have become even more eclectic. Stacey’s great language skills have allowed her to release an album entirely in French (Raconte-Moi), and her fluent Portuguese has enabled collaboration with Brazilian artists like Marcos Valle, also known as the father of the bossanova.

Along with Claes Crona’s amazing trio, Stacey and Jim will perform a repertoire of songs showcasing the duo’s full range of skills during the Stockholm Jazz Festival and no doubt their fan base will only continue to grow thereafter.
