Announcing the release of \'Prelude\', SF jazz vocalist Milla Milojkovic's sophomore CD. Milla is a San Francisco-based singer that possesses the unique ability to deliver shy and gutsy in the same breath, using her empathic abilities to affect her audience to it's core. In Prelude, Milla maximizes the talent of her recording band, led by pianist Adam Shulman. Dayna Stephens' dreamy sax solos wail over the burnin' rhythm section (John Wiitala on bass and Tim Bulkley on drums) revealing new ideas in an old setting. Guitarist Bob Brumbeloe joins the group for a couple tunes, upping the cool factor considerably with his groovy sound. At the heart of it all is the voice of Milla. She delivers with sex appeal, sorrow, sass, and intensity. Her sound is educated and inspired. Milla's warm, sultry tone translates effortlessly between genres, also exemplified in Prelude. From smoky bossas to fearless blues, her style is distinct and her interpretations soulful. The CD features imaginative arrangements of well-represented classics, in addition to the lesser-known gems she digs up and just has to share. Of her new CD Prelude, Milla comments, "If I had to picture someone listening to this CD, I would hope they'd be near a lover and a fireplace." \'[Milla] sings with admirably good taste, keen sense of time and implacable intonation . . . . Her emotional colors warm and animate her soulful interpretations" -Dr. Herb Wong, famed jazz journalist/producer "Milla stands out with a beautiful vocal sound....This woman has real feeling in her singing." -Larry Vuckovich, jazz pianist \'Milla is an emissary from another era -- her music, her lingo, her style. She evokes experiences certainly beyond her years. Must be that Balkan soul.\' -Bruce Bellingham, SF Examiner.
