Come Rain Or Come Shine

COVER COME RAIN OR COME SHINE

Jazzwise 4**** – 2014

“the unforced lyricism, the conversational quality and sheer elegance of the music-making, the palpable sense of enjoying each other’s musical company – are all captured to masterly effect on Come Rain or Come Shine….Mancio sings beautifully, negotiating the intricacies of these standards with a real joie de vivre”

The Observer 4**** – 2014

“To improvise on the melody of a song while leaving its lyric unaltered is a difficult and delicate process, but Georgia Mancio brings it off with such grace that she almost makes it sound easy….In all respects an accomplished and beguiling set”

 

All About Jazz 5***** – 2014

“an object lesson in subtlety, in understated interpretation, in the impact of nuance…. Mancio can re-invigorate a lyric with the slightest shift in emphasis, timing or intonation….It’s beautiful”

 

London Jazz – 2014

“Mancio doesn’t miss a beat, her phrasing jazzy but always keeping the sense of the lyrics….She scats beautifully… emphasising how much the voice is one of the instruments, never just a singer with a backing band….Georgia Mancio lets the songs breathe”

 

The Scotsman 4**** – 2014

“a cool, classy elegance and balmy feel to this gorgeous album… [Mancio’s] gentle, clear and beguiling voice is …beautifully complemented by Nigel Price’s eloquent guitar”

Jazz Journal 4**** – 2014

“There is a warm fullness about all the performances on this disc with the voice strong in all registers…[and] some of the best support I’ve heard in this format by guitar and bass…. more than a little special”
