Here's a new VIDEO with music from my latest CD "NEW DANCE" celebrating my original compositions (with and without lyrics) with the incredible Michael Abene on piano! We had so much fun playing and improvising on these tunes while recording at Upland Recording Studio (Marbletown, NY) and also playing some fantastic gigs to celebrate in New York! Here's a link to the video...the tropical scenes were shot in Cancun earlier this year (Lucky Me)!
Judi’s NEW CD: "MY DANCE" is a collection of Judi Silvano’s original songs with Veteran Pianist Michael Abene; collaborative arrangements between two creative improvisers at the top of their game; some have lyrics while others leave the story to the listener’s imagination. Here are just a few quotes from CD reviews:
...peerless improvisations...memorable lyrics...
Tom Cunniffe, 
Silvano has a steady stream of ideas...all her tunes deserve lyrics that would permit them to catch on as future standards. This is an intriguing set.
Scott Yanow, Downbeat 
Her songs are exultant...joyous...exhilarating...swirling...finesse...
Christopher Loudon, JazzTimes
