Judi Silvano lets her heart and soul come pouring out on her CD "Songs
I Wrote Or Wish I Did." This woman really knows how to manipulate
a song to fit her voice and style. She is fortunate to have a well-versed
band to support her colorful and poignant vocals. Its lead singing
like Silvanoís that make a jazz song sound like it should. With highly
energized emotionally charged music to back her every step of the
way, she makes it seem so effortless and natural. She sings every
song like itís her birthright.
She covers "A Flower Is A Lovesome Thing" like it was written specifically
for her, and on the other side of the tracks sings "Hey Boy", whereby
she becomes the flirtatious diva with a message. "I Love Music" tells
her story. She interjects her vivacious personality into every song.
And it all comes right from the tip of her toes. You find out how
much she loves music very quickly from the way she handles herself
throughout each and every song.
Itís easy to see that Judi Silvano is in this game for the long haul.
She takes her art seriously, and it shows throughout this whole album.
I found the music to be excellent from start to finish, and that is
what compliments Silvano so well. At times the band is allowed to
spread its proverbial musical wings and strut its stuff, as the singer
gives them some room to do what they do best. Ultimately she is rewarded
by her open-ended approach to the music and the power the lyrics hold.
I recognized the groupís talent and abilities collectively quite readily
when I was able to listen to the entire band without separating the
vocals. Itís a fascinating and rewarding experience when you can focus
on the singer, the music, and then both.
This girl swings, and she looks every bit the part of the fulfilled
singer on the cover of this CD. Now you tell meÖ is she having a good
time living to the fullest and experiencing all the joys of life and her music or not?
