iTunes Editors’ Notes

Spicing up her jazz standards with rock selections, Juno-winning Canadian singer Sophie Milman stretches out a bit as she applies her supple, smoky alto to tunes from songwriters as diverse as Duke Ellington and Bruce Springsteen. Milman doesn’t let her considerable technical ability lead her away from a lyric’s meaning — even when she’s scatting her heart out on Paul Simon’s “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover,” she captures the subtle ironies of its words. Backed by a crisp, fluent combo, she sails joyously on “That Is Love” and “Day In, Day Out.” Her rendition of the title tune is a particular delight, a mix of girlish fun and sober reflection. Tunes like Joni Mitchell’s “Be Cool” allow her to slink along with hipster panache, while Springsteen’s “I’m On Fire” deviates from the original version in revelatory ways. While this album mostly avoids melancholy moods, a sad and dreamy take on “Where Do You Start?” stands out as a high point. By taking chances, Take Love Easy helps secure Milman’s stature as an artist on the rise.

Customer Reviews

Sophie Milman "Take Love Easy"

Not really my genre, but I have to say I was knocked out by the quality of the recordings & with the time & effort taken to produce this album. In an age when it's more about the marketing than about the music, this album truely stands out!

Good, not great

This is a good example of Ms. Milman's work. I've seen her in concert and admire her work. My only criticism is that she sings with VERY mushy diction, and occassionally is hard to understand. Definitely listen to her other work. There is much here to enjoy.

Take love easy

She Is just ok. Nothing more, nothing less .Havn't we all heard these songs a billion times already! . You want to hear something fresh and original go buy the new jazz singer Brigitte Zarie Amazing! I just got It and It was worth every penny!
