It was a family affair at the Falcon in Marlboro as well-known jazz vocalist Judi Silvano celebrated the release of her new CD, My Dance, a sparkling collaboration with pianist-composer-arranger Michael Abene.

And Silvano shared the stage with her husband Joe Lovano’s trio Fascination, featuring Hudson Valley stalwart Doug Weiss on bass and Cleveland-based Carmen Castaldi on drums, in addition to Lovano’s volcanic sax playing.

The two combos each played several selections separately as well as together.

Highlights of the evening’s two sets included a piece that started with Hispanic overtones and ended with chanting titled “Dust,” a spirited version of Duke Ellington’s “Mood Indigo” and some great scat singing by Silvano accompanied solely by Abene, as well as some calypso and Latin-based pieces.
