Sophie Milman - The making of "In The Moonlight"

Biography

Sophie Milman is a charismatic young Russian-born, Israeli-raised, Toronto-based jazz vocalist who's well on her way to becoming an international sensation. Still in her twenties, she's been a household name in Canada since 2004, when her debut album established her as a major artist in her adopted home country. Since then, she's continued to take the jazz world by storm, topping ... Read more in Amazon's Sophie Milman Store

Editorial Reviews

Few young vocalists have entered the jazz scene in this new century with the kind of acclaim received by the supremely talented Sophie Milman. Still in her 20s, she has now delivered her fourth album and first masterpiece, In The Moonlight.

Produced by Grammy-winner Matt Pierson (Jane Monheit, Michael Franks, Joshua Redman, Kirk Whalum), this warm, witty, and altogether wonderful collection marks the first time Sophie has recorded in New York with an all-star supporting cast of jazz veterans and hot new stars: names like Randy Brecker, Chris Potter, Gerald Clayton, Julian Lage, Lewis Nash, and Kevin Hays.

It s also the first Sophie Milman collection that features arrangements for strings and larger ensembles. Once again, the list of collaborators is first class: Alan Broadbent, Rob Mounsey, and Gil Goldstein---as well as the aforementioned Gerald Clayton and Kevin Hays--- have all contributed charts.

All of this talent unites to realize an ambitious repertoire that ranges widely from standards ( Speak Low, Watch What Happens ) to show tunes ( Till There Was You ), and from Ellington/Strayhorn ( Prelude To A Kiss and Day Dream ) to Feist ( So Sorry )---with Gershwin, Gainsbourg, and Jobim added in for more than good measure.

You may have guessed that it takes a remarkable artist to pull this extraordinary music together. With a rich, sensuous voice that puts a thoroughly modern spin on the legacy of immortals like June Christy and Carmen MacRae, Sophie Milman makes her mark not just as a singer of songs, but as a complete musician whose taste and sophistication sets her alongside today s very greatest singers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Satin and fire. September 28, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Sophie is not well known yet in the US, but it is time she was. Her voice is a flexible, sensual instrument, wonderfully rounded, just smokey enough for interest, smooth enough to slide around these delightful songs. Her ensemble sounds like it is fresh from a club date, and the drums and bass swing with fresh verve and enthusiasm. Ms. Milman brings a deft touch and an unfailing musicality to some fairly traditional songs, and they feel new and fun. She has the glitter and shimmer to propel her into the mainstream consciousness, but she has more than enough talent to deserve her accolades. The effortless glissandos on Moonlight are worth the price of admission on their own. Check her out if you are a fan of the modern jazz revival. Fans of Diana Krall will likely especially enjoy her, although she is by no means a Krall clone--they just share a wonderful jazz sensibility, a knack to pick excellent songs for themselves, and an unfailing melodic grace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply excellent! November 2, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In short, Miss Milman delivers the goods -- again! Unlike John Nielsen (Midlothian, VA United States), I found the use of strings quite tasteful. The arrangements are pleasing and the highly professional sidemen contribute marvellously. Especially pleasing is that drummer Lewis Nash was able to constrain himself and fully devote his energy to support of Miss Milman and fellow musicians. While it's true that 12 of 13 tracks er low or mid tempo, the up tempo, swinging 13th track reminds us that Miss Milman is more than capable of matching the very best of past and present vocal swingers; indeed, she would do well to provide more swing on her next album because she does it so well. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Glowing Album April 6, 2012
Format:Audio CD
"Sophie Milman is a velvety singer who sounds so completely comfortable luxuriating in the melodies of George Gershwin and Duke Ellington. Regardless of which composer she's interpreting, Milman's intimate yet muscular vocal delivery makes every track shine on her fourth CD. This gifted vocalist is consistently convincing, whether she's joyously elongating the vowel sounds in 'Till There Was You' or providing a dramatic, accordion-fueled, French-language reading of 'Ces Petits Riens'...This gem of a CD is definitely a keeper." ~ Bobby Reed, DownBeat ~

"Milman jumps to the front of the post-Krall pack of jazz singers." ~ JazzTimes ~

April is National Jazz Appreciation Month, and naturally I'm reviewing a lovely jazz album as my first review of the month. And I hope to review more jazz albums for the rest of this month in celebration of this music genre. To my fellow jazz enthusiasts, please join in the celebration by giving your support and appreciation to the singers, musicians who keep this art form alive and kicking. Many thanks!

Sophie Milman's latest and fourth album, "In The Moolight," is Number Six (out of 11) on DownBeat's Editors' Picks for January 2012. With each album that she recorded--from her debut, self-titled, Sophie Milman, Make Someone Happy, Take Love Easy to this latest offering--she is elegantly evolving into a remarkable jazz singer whose presence in the jazz world is widely felt not only by jazz critics but jazz enthusiasts and listeners as well.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor sound for hifi April 24, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This recording sounds so artificial: there's no sense of a singer with a band - more like a singer and a backing track. The backing music seems to be often veiled in comparison to the very forward vocal sound but worse still it also often sounds too compressed. The result is mushy without a sense of space around each instrument. This project could have been so much better.

Alternatively, if Sophie could have stuck with the producer and sound engineer (and musicians) who did the excellent Take Love Easy album, an engaging and more artistically vibrant project, she could have moved forward rather than taking this big step backward in the studio recording part of her career. Oh well, you can't win 'em all.

Edit: Just listened to the whole CD on your typical crappy car stereo (2007 Hyundai Sonata in my case) and it sounds fabulous - 5 stars. But as I do my quality listening at home on decent equipment I must keep the overall 2 star rating.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing a longtime fan October 31, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been a fan of Sophie Milman since the beginning of her career and saw her live at the Blue Note in 2008: a superb show.So I bought this record on faith, without hearing a single track or reading a single published review.The good news is that Sophie's voice is still wonderfully expressive, pure, and accurate.
The bad news is that she is veering further away from jazz and the material on this CD is overwhelmingly syrupy romantic songs, which are fine as one element of a program but become very tedious when there's almost nothing else.It does not help that the arrangements are too slick and too reliant on sugary violins. I hope her career goals have not shifted from being a real singer to being a Vegas crooner, but that is the impression created here.
