Classic Arts News   Vocalist Sophie Milman Debuts on Billboard Jazz Chart
Vocalist Sophie Milman's self-titled debut album made its first appearance on the Billboard jazz chart this week at number 14.

Born in Russia, Milman grew up in Israel and Canada; her first album was released in Canada two years ago and was one of the top-selling jazz releases of 2004 there. It includes renditions of Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Agua de Beber," Cole Porter's "My Heart Belongs to Daddy," the Gershwins' "The Man I Love," and other standards.

The top of the chart was unchanged, with Michael Bubl_'s It's Time continuing its long reign at number one and Cassandra Wilson's Thunderbird again at number two in its second week.

On the contemporary-jazz chart, Herbie Hancock's Possibilities remained at number one. The sole new entry was guitarist Venon Neilly's G-Fire II, at number 24.
