The Artistry of … Sophie Milman

AO Sophie Milman

– “classic jazz voice that evokes smoky lounges, softly clinking glasses and the cool of the night.” That’s how she has been described by National Public Radio and I just like these words from the The L.A. Times:

“Not the next Ella or Sarah, but the first Sophie Milman. Her singing has evolved into an original style steeped in the influences of the greatest of the genre. Her standout influence is the great Carmen McRae.”

About her Milman has said, “McRea invested drama in everything she sang on stage or did in life…that’s what the singer is there for.”
