    All French. All Stacy.

    I don't speak French, and except for the odd phrase or word, I don't understand French. But I dig Stacey Kent, and I am sauteed by this 12-track album of lilting, romantic, lovely music.

    Husband Jim Tomlinson plays an orchestra of sax accompaniment, and as he has through seven previous albums by Stacey, and did the arranging. He also recruited key musicians from "Breakfast on the Morning Tram," including John Perricelli on guitar, veteran percussionist Matt Shelton on drums, and the superb Graeham Harvey on piano.

    But it's Stacey's voice that makes the music. She wraps her words and notes around the French like a warm baggete. I recognized not a single melody, until No. 7, "C'est le printemps," and the song might as well be in English the way Stacey -- this daughter of Manhattan - presents it with perfect diction and rhythmic affection for the notes as well as the lyrics. It sounds even more romantic in French than it was in English "In Love Again."

    In previous albums Stacey included tracks in French. This time she's all French, and still all Stacey.

    Great cover art, too.
