Produced by Steven MacKinnon (Molly Johnson, Marc Jordan, Natalie Cole) and featuring an all-star band with special guests Wessell "Warmdaddy" Anderson (Wynton Marsalis, Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra), Guido Basso, P.J. Perry, Michael Kaeshammer and Robi Botos, Take Love Easy is a breathtaking portrait of an artist coming of age while breaking new musical boundaries.
Take Love Easy features 13 sizzling interpretations of old favourites and new classics by songwriters from Duke Ellington and Cole Porter to Bruce Springsteen, Joni Mitchell and Paul Simon, all executed in Sophie's coolly inimitable style.
“…Take Love Easy, her third album, delivers the goods instantly. The very first thing we hear is her voice, dark and lustrous, over a walking bass line as she gently but decisively swings “Beautiful Love”, and it’s clear that this is no pop jazz confection. Between her honeyed tone and relaxed, back-of-the-pocket phrasing, Milman sings with a maturity beyond her years…” -Globe and Mail
“She could remake a T-Pain come-on into a Carmen McRae entreaty. The opener, ‘Beautiful Love,’ combines a crisply swinging tempo with a sultry minorkey; ‘Where Do You Start?’ closes things on a subtly dramatic note. ... But Ms. Milman’s core philosophy might best be summed up by the Joni Mitchell tune she covers here: ‘Be Cool.’” -New York Times
