Read "Songbook" reviewed by

Twenty years ago Georgia Mancio, the London-based singer and songwriter, began listening to pianist Alan Broadbent's recordings with Irene Kral. In 2013 the pair began working together as a duo after Mancio sent Broadbent a message “on a whim." In 2015 and 2016 they recorded together and Songbook is the result: a dozen original compositions--music by Broadbent, lyrics by Mancio--that signal an exciting and sophisticated new partnership.The album's charms are apparent from the opening bars of the delicate ...

The name at the top of the cover of Live At ReVoice! is that of Georgia Mancio, the London-based vocalist who appears on every one of the 12 tracks.

Georgia Mancio and Nigel Price: Come Rain Or Come Shine

Read "Come Rain Or Come Shine" reviewed by

Subtlety. It's a useful characteristic in many walks of life. It's underused, too. Come Rain Or Come Shine, the first recording from the partnership of singer Georgia Mancio and guitarist Nigel Price, is an object lesson in subtlety, in understated interpretation, in the impact of nuance. It's really rather good. Mancio and Price are well-established performers with growing reputations--Price's Organ Trio won the 2010 Parliamentary Jazz Award for Best Ensemble, Mancio's third album, Silhouette (Roomspin Records), was one ...

If Georgia Mancio had taken the left-hand path, then she might now be carving out a career in movie production. She took the other route, thanks to a part-time job and a box set of albums, to become one of the UK's most innovative singers and lyricists. The cinema's loss was the music world's gain.Fast-forward to 2010 and another pathway ...

Georgia Mancio: Silhouette

Read "Silhouette" reviewed by

The mix of standards and original compositions, delivered in Mancio's light but distinctive voice, and accompanied by some of the finest musicians on the British jazz scene, is a genuine cause for such celebration. Silhouette is innovative, lyrically inventive, risky at times and always rewarding. Mancio's vocal delivery is reminiscent of Anita O'Day's; her enunciation is clear and precise but there is ...
