  Songbook album – Jazzviews interview 2017

‘Every now and again something special comes along, and when Songbook was released last month it was readily apparent that this was one of those moments. An album that is utterly contemporary, completely within the tradition of the Great American Songbook, and yet not in awe of it. Indeed, such is the quality of the music and lyrics on this startlingly beautiful and original album that it is arguable that the songs by Georgia Mancio and Alan Broadbent deserve a place among them.” 

 

 Songbook album – Jazzwise interview 2017

“For a contemporary vocal jazz album to contain an original song that could reasonably be compared to the great standards of the past is a rare thing. For a contemporary vocal jazz album to present an entire set of originals which merit the comparison is rare still. The latter is certainly the case with Songbook…”

“Georgia Mancio has climbed musical mountains in the last five years, curating and organising the annual ReVoice! vocal festival as well as forging a solo career of increasing distinction and character…. Where some artists might deliberate and waver, Georgia Mancio simply acts.”
