"Again and again, Silvano breaks out of the well-established waters of vocal jazz."

Sonic Twist Unity
Sonic Twist (Judi Silvano & Bruce Arnold)


UNITY is the third album by the Sonic Twist duo and each demonstrates the special affinities vocal musician Judi Silvano and guitarist Bruce Arnold share. Both using electronics, structure, theme and development are apparent no matter how far out they spin with each other in a spontaneous choreography. All 17 tracks form a unified suite that expresses a range of human experiences and Michal Shapiro has created a visual counterpart with a video for each.


A Bit About Judi

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.

Born in Philadelphia, with a degree (in both Music and Dance) from Temple University, Judi made her way to New York City in 1976 where she launched her career as an improviser — of dance at first. But jazz would not be far behind.
