Album Info

Georgia joins forces with award-winning guitarist, Nigel Price, in this beautiful and intimate collection of jazz standards.

Part duo, part trio (with another long-term collaborator, bassist Julie Walkington), Come Rain or Come Shine was recorded completely live with no overdubbing in a small studio over two afternoons.

The result is an organic, deceptively simple set of ten songs with story telling and improvisation as equal partners.  Rain, shine, light, shade: all is to be found here.

Reviews

“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”  Jazzwise 4**** (Selected in ‘Best of 2014’ album list)

“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”  The Observer 4****

“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”   All About Jazz 5*****(Selected in ‘Best of 2014’ album list)

“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”  London Jazz

“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”  The Scotsman 4**** 

“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”   Jazz Journal 4****
