—All about Jazz
Grammy winner and sax-master Joe Lovano produced the CD and will be on hand to add his signature sound to the varied musical mix. Silvano’s songs are not confined to a strictly jazz setting- she is too adventurous for such restrictions and brings in elements of calypso, blues and bolero.
