“Judi Silvano has long been recognized as one of the most innovative vocalists of modern jazz. Her studies of flute and dance have clearly informed her approach to phrasing and movement in performance and composition; her associations with some of today’s more inspired artists such as Bill Frisell, Kenny Werner, Charlie Haden and Joe Lovano also have provided opportunity to explore improvisation from an instrumentalist’s perspective. That perspective is on full display on Judi’s new CD, Cleome: Live Takes, a set of mostly original compositions and Judi’s enthusiasm for composition and spontaneous improvisation is readily apparent.”
