One of the great tenor-saxophonists in modern jazz (Joe Lovano) and his wife, the talented singer Judi Silvano, teamed up for a solo and duet performance on their May 23, 2020 LiveStream.

Lovano was born in Cleveland, was inspired by his father Tony “Big T” Lovano who played tenor locally, worked early on with Jack McDuff, Dr. Lonnie Smith and the Woody Herman Orchestra and the Mel Lewis Big Band, and has been a major force in the jazz world since the mid-1980s.

Joe Lovano has since led over 25 significant albums and worked with everyone from John Scofield and Bill Frisell to Saxophone Summit (next to David Liebman and Michael Brecker) and his own groups including Us Fire, a quintet that included bassist-singer Esperanza Spalding.

Judi Silvano, who learned from Sheila Jordan and Jeanne Lee, has worked with Mal Waldron, Kenny Werner and Bill Frisell in addition to leading more than ten of her albums and collaborating with her husband.

On their fascinating May 23, 2020 LiveStream of free improvisations, Lovano switches between several of his reeds (including tenor, alto clarinet and soprano) while Silvano alternates between singing wordlessly and painting a picture.
