I hunch that Sophie Milman's voice won't be to everyone's taste. For those (like myself) who do respond to her idiosyncratic--but very sensual-- way with a song, this collection is a definite knock-out. Combining selections from the traditional jazz songbook (her rendition of "I Concentrate on You" is perfection) with more adventurous choices from the pop-rock songbook (Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon and Bruce Springsteen are all represented here), this is a lovely piece of work featuring Milman's voice against the backdrop of impeccably arranged and wonderfully played accompaniments. Enjoy!

With this album Sophie Millman should be placed in the celebrated company of Diana Krall and Jane Monheit. Her phrasing and choice of material are right on the money.

I've been following the career of this extraordinary young talent for a few years, and even though she's only in her mid-20s she's wise beyond her age. I like the way she treats more contemporary tunes by Paul Simon and Bruce Springsteen, with her rendition of Bonnie Raitt's "I Can't Make You Love Me," coming off as extra-special. Don't miss out on Sophie.

"'Take Love Easy.' Easier said than done, especially when 'love' is really 'life.' Personally, I've never been great at taking anything easy, but I am absolutely eager to learn. While 'Make Someone Happy' was a reflection of where I came from, this album hints at where I intend to go, musically and personally. These songs showcase the complexity of love and the need to simply let go sometimes. That's definitely not easy, but as I'm discovering, it's absolutely crucial, both in art and in life." ~ Sophie Milman ~

Her self-titled debut album was striking. Her sophomore album was grand. Now her third and latest album is a charm. After the huge success of her first two recordings, Sophie Milman is back and this time she's offering her fans a varied and balanced material ranging from some standards from Great American Songbook, a Brazilian jazz staple, and a few contemporary songs from the pens of Joni Mitchell, Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, and one of her band members, arranger/pianist Paul Shrofel.

Her second offering, Make Someone Happy, reinforced Sophie Milman's credibility as a jazz singer. It is an award-winning-album. Like "Take Love Easy," it was consistently among the top five albums in jazz charts in U.S. and Canada upon its release. Also, it ultimately bagged the 2008 Juno Award for Jazz Vocal Album of the Year. Having performed at great jazz venues such as Hollywood Bowl, Blue Note and Kennedy Center, she has really evolved not only as a singer and recording artist, but also a total performer as evident by the following accolades afforded to her amazing vocal flair and artistry.

"The sky's the limit for this exceptional young talent.

I have purchased this CD by Sophie Milman. I had never heard of her before, other than a partial scanned through radio interview with a local jazz Maven, who said Ms.Milman was worth giving a listen to.
She is smoky and audibly delicious; reminding me of times and sultry singer/sirens long past and making me wish I was 50 or so years younger so I could continue to listen as Sophie grows.
I loved the album's selections and the total presentation.
I await her performances in this area (South Florida) in order to absorb the live flavor of this blessed jazz child singer's work.
Purchase of every CD she makes is obviously on my schedule.
Are you sure there is no enhanced rating beyond 5 stars?

I heard of this artist on audiophile forums. The sound quality of this CD is very good, but you'll keep coming back for Sophie's beautiful voice. She has a great touch that is hard to come by these days. She doesn't over do it, but engages and balances with the music, the accompaniment, and the lyrics. Wonderfully relaxing.

Sophie Milman is simply superb. When I listen to her smooth, sultry vocals, my mind is awash in pure aural pleasure. I'm not in a dumpy apartment in the middle of nowheresville, I'm in a nightclub, sitting at a table, a drink in my hand, and just taking in the sublime vocalizations of this amazing singer. I don't have to think about bills, or health problems, I can just listen, and I can let the tears run down my face while her words and her heart bring my own a comfort that seems to elude it elsewhere.

If you haven't given this lovely, talented, skilled young woman a chance, please do so. You will not regret it.

On a recent road trip I finally gave Sophie Milman the time she deserves. Nothing routine about her. Just an incredible jazz vocalist. Her rendition of "My One and Only Love" might now reside in my Top Ten numbers of all time. I am no musician - so I probably need help on this - what is the instrument that accompanies her on "My One and Only Love" - a recorder?? Whatever it may be, it turns the song in something unforgettable. If you love Diana Krall, Blossom Dearie, Astrud Gilberto, and female jazz singers of this type, by all means try Sophie Milman. You will not be disappointed.
