Collective improvisation reminiscent of the loft scene in the 80's in New York City where the musicians seem telepathic and deeply connected in creating arrangements of mostly original songs. Happy and uplifting.
Vocalist & Composer/ Lyricist JUDI SILVANO loves to play with fun-loving and swinging musicians that really listen to each other on the bandstand. Her CLEOME Quartet, features GEORGE GARZONE, MIKE FORMANEK & GERRY HEMINGWAY. Concentrating on Silvano's original compositions with lots of Improvisational Interplay throughout, this is a band that knows how to have fun!!! She has played with some of the greats like JOE LOVANO & KENNY WERNER & LEE KONITZ & BILLY HART & BILL FRISELL & VICTOR LEWIS & RATZO B. HARRIS & INGRID JENSEN & DICK OATTS & RUFUS REID, so she has a pretty high standard.
