You Heard It Here First: Feb. 7 at the Admiral

I’ve started doing some research for a preview of the Feb. 7 Admiral Theatre concert by Sophie Milman . On the basis of what I’ve heard (ain’t YouTube great?), this is gonna be a great show. Milman sings an eclectic blend of jazz standards and other, unexpected gems (from the Guess Who’s "Undun" to Kermit the Frog’s "It’s Not Easy Being Green") with a voice that could melt Tungsten, and a sense of style and phrasing that belies her tender years (she’s 25).

I sampled the tunes from her latest CD, "Make Someone Happy," on the Web, and saw some concert footage of her, as well as an NPR interview with Scott Simon. And I’m convinced. She’s a star, and the Admiral is a perfect place to see her.

Just save a ticket for me.

Information: (360) 373-6743, admiraltheatre.org, linusentertainment.com.
