Lessons Learned

This album features all Original Songs and Lyrics from the pen of Judi Silvano. Her personal observations on Life and Love tell stories ranging from tender to spiritual to whimsical and hilarious. The empathy of her 2-guitar Zephyr band plus guest Joe Lovano brings this mature compilation of songs to life.

Listen to This

This is the first album vocalist Judi Silvano and guitarist Bruce Arnold released of their Electro-Acoustic Duo excursions. These Co-Compositions evolved in the moment and vary from calm Soundscapes to rock-ish energy.

My Dance

Silvano has written songs through the years and yet this is her first release where ALL of the tracks are her originals. Some have lyrics while others leave the story line to the listener’s imagination. Powerful piano by Michael Abene with Judi’s tasteful vocals in a fascinating duo session.

Indigo Moods

Featuring some of Judi’s favorite Standard Songs in a Trio format with Peter Tomlinson on Piano and Fred Jacobs on Trumpet. They work together seamlessly interpreting the many moods and stories of these Classic songs of life and love.

A Healing of Self

Guided narration by Hypno-Therapist Allan Reutershan, to foster self-healing. Since he was inspired by the music of Silvano and Lovano, soothing excerpts of their “Spirit Music” album accompany his mellow direction.

Cleome: Live Takes

A joyous collection of Live Recordings from Silvano with well-known NYC downtown musicians. Her bandmates are George Garzone, Michael Formanek, John Lindberg and Gerry Hemingway. Together they explore collective improvisation.

Women’s Work

Judi Silvano leads a tight unit of top women players with Janice Friedman, Jennifer Vincent and Allison Miller. This is an inspired tribute to Jazz History and compositions by under-appreciated American Jazz Women, recorded LIVE at Sweet Rhythm, NYC.

Spirit Music

Peaceful sounds to help rejuvenate body, mind and spirit. Silvano plays alto flute, voice, alto recorder while Grammy winner Joe Lovano plays gongs, percussion, wood flute, bass recorder. A superb companion to practices of yoga, meditation and massage.

Celestial Voices

This music is a soothing and flowing album of women’s voices, with a new age and chamber music feeling.   Silvano’s adept direction of the A Capella vocals along with her arrangements incorporating flutes creates a relaxing moment to breathe more deeply.

Let Yourself Go

Judi’s recording featuring exciting Septet Arrangements by the great Michael Abene with an All-Star ensemble of 3 horns and rhythm section. Featuring Dick Oatts, Ingrid Jensen, Dan Silverman, Rufus Reid, Newman Taylor-Baker with Abene conducting from the piano. This project was an 80th Birthday Gift, as these songs were some of her mother’s favorites from the Great American Songbook. Here’s to you, Miriam!

Riding A Zephyr

A delightful encounter between the seasoned pianist and composer who had been Billie Holiday’s last accompanist and a young, gifted vocal musician. This landmark collaboration reveals the sympatico of these two artists despite decades between them. Notable are Silvano’s original songs, her lyrics set to some of Mal’s compositions and their unique interpretations of his classic repertoire, including “Soul Eyes”.

Songs I Wrote Or Wish I Did

The title says it all! This is one of the most swinging bands I’ve ever had the privilege to assemble with Vic Juris, Larry Goldings, Essiet Okon Essiet and Victor Lewis! I chose some classic music of Billy Strayhorn, Thad Jones/Abbey Lincoln, Bob Dorough/Fran Landesman, Emil Boyd/Hale Smith, Jane Hall and Myrow/DeLange to record with this great band. I was also excited to record some of my own original songs and lyrics, too.


Silvano’s Blue Note Records release was only her second album as Leader. This album shows her roots and diversity as a contemporary modern jazz vocalist and she is surrounded by a stellar cast. She tackles gems of classical composers Rachmaninoff, Ives and Ravel bringing them into her creative sphere alongside Strayhorn, Monk and Mingus with aplomb.

Dancing Voices

Judi Silvano’s first recording as a leader was a tour de force! Already shaping her own style as composer and arranger, you will hear her with horns as well as a Vocal Quartet in a tapestry of sound explorations.
