What Judi Silvano has been able to accomplish thus far gives the appearance of multiple artists’ careers strung together — but it’s all Judi. In fact, she’s always got a new project ready to fly, oftentimes dovetailing and overlapping her previous efforts.
To date, Judi Silvano has 14 recordings to her credit, including 1997’s Vocalise on the Blue Note label. She has recorded her own original songs in addition to classic standard songs in ensembles from Duo (her 2014 release with Michael Abene: My Dance, and another with Mal Waldron: Riding a Zephyr) to Trio (voice, piano and trumpet: Indigo Moods) to Quartet (Women’s Work and Cleome), Quintet (Songs I Wrote Or Wish I Did) and Sextet (Silvano’s 2018 most recent release Lessons Learned).
As a progressive composer and arranger, Judi Silvano’s work has been recognized by the industry in many ways, including taking First Prize in The Brooklyn Lager Band Search, with judging for the Search led by trumpeter Lester Bowie. She has written over 45 jazz and chamber music compositions which have been featured on recordings and stages in the US and in Europe.
The roster of musicians with whom Silvano has collaborated, performed, recorded and/or toured reads like a Who’s Who of Jazz. A short list of these stellar artists includes Kenny Werner, Joe Lovano, Charlie Haden, Jack DeJohnette, Billy Drewes, Ratzo Harris, Bill Frisell, Tim Hagans, Paul Motian, Erik Friedlander, George Garzone, Manny Albam, Dave Holland, Mike Formanek, Gerry Hemmingway, Michael Abene, Rufus Reid, Ingrid Jensen, Dick Oatts and Newman Taylor Baker – and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. She’s performed at a multitude of festivals and concert houses around the globe including the Montreal, Paris, London, Verona, Perugia, Istanbul, Langnau Switzerland and North Sea Jazz Festivals as well as in NYC.
