[From Facebook] 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 the Billboard jazz and iTunes charts Canada, the U.S., France and Japan, winning a Juno Award, and captivating audiences worldwide.In the Moonlight, Milman’s fourth album, finds the artist creating her most sophisticated and accomplished work to date, drawing upon her sublime interpretive skills and unique personal history to deliver a deeply compelling set of jazz and pop standards that showcases the subtle emotional shadings of her singing.
Throughout In the Moonlight, Milman’s performances elevate a musically and lyrically diverse array of material, encompassing the playful romanticism of the George Gershwin/Buddy DeSylva chestnut “Do It Again,” the poignant melancholy of the Kurt Weill classic “Speak Low,” the barbed bittersweetness of Serge Gainsbourg’s “Ces Petits Riens,” the effortless uplift of the Antonio Carlos Jobim/Jon Hendricks bossa nova favorite “No More Blues” and the understated elegance of the beloved Duke Ellington classics “Prelude to A Kiss” and “Day Dream.”
