Album Info

From English to Italian to Spanish to Brazilian Portuguese: a Rodgers and Hart standard rubbing shoulders with a Chilean folk song; a Cuban classic sitting alongside a show-tune; an Italian pop song nestled between two blues and three very different sambas paying homage to the great composers of Brazil past and present.

This is Trapeze, the follow-up to Georgia’s debut, Peaceful Place, and the culmination of two years’ live work with her band: Gareth Lockrane (flutes), John Pearce (piano), Dave Green (bass), Dave Ohm (co-producer/drums) and Anselmo Netto (percussion/mandolin).

Reviews

Perhaps most impressive of all is her versatility across a range of settings.  The album jumps from Jobim/Moraes to Lionel Bart … to Stanley Turrentine… without ever once loosing its footing… gorgeously seductive.”  Jazzwise 

“taste, originality and understated eloquence…..[the] album…displays those qualities in abundance and should put her well and truly on the map.”  The Observer 

“This is one of the best jazz vocal albums I have heard in a long time…a winner”  Jazz Journal  – Critics Choice Best of 2008 selection

“The word has been out for a couple of years that Georgia is someone to watch out for and her new album shows why….Marvel at the way Mancio’s rhythmic grasp never fails her in such a variety of groove and swing.  She is, without question, the real thing.”  Jazz UK 

“a force to be reckoned with…her musicality and inspired choice of material mark her out as…one to watch”   BBC Online 

“She’s a class act whose second album showcases a dizzying talent”  Shropshire Star 

“Remember the name because Georgia Mancio is just this side of a breakthrough into the mainstream. One Jonathan Ross show or a Later with Jools Holland, and she’ll be the talk of the town. Already a cult heroine on the jazz circuit…..she’s a versatile virtuoso!”  Sunday Mercury 

“an airy, gossamer voice and a penchant for … unusual song choices… A lovely album”   The Scotsman

“ambitiously wide-ranging but coheres courtesy not only of the intelligence with which she deals with a lyric…but also of the sureness of her delivery and the cogency of the various songs’ arrangements.”  The Vortex
