"This vinyl remastering of Breakfast On The Morning Train is a perfect vehicle for Kent and her silky voice. Despite the higher pitch, there is great richness and texture. The guitars (both acoustic and electric) have a fuller resonance and complexity. As usual, the glossy packaging and gatefold cover are first-rate." — Audiophile Audition, Aug. 5, 2012
Vocalist Stacey Kent delivers a charming mix of standards, pop covers, French chansons, and original songs on Breakfast on the Morning Tram. The album was produced by Kent's husband, tenor saxophonist Jim Tomlinson, whose album, The Lyric, featured Kent's vocals and won Best Album at the 2006 BBC Jazz Awards.
Breakfast on the Morning Tram marked Kent's return to the studio after a four-year recording hiatus, and inspired the album's title, referring to the start of something new; a journey in a new direction. It is also the name of one of four new original songs — the first originals that Kent has ever recorded — written especially for her by Tomlinson and acclaimed author Kazuo Ishiguro, winner of the Booker and Whitbread prizes for such literary works as "The Remains of the Day" and "Never Let Me Go."
