Georgia Mancio Trapeze 2008

Trapeze album 2008

Jazzwise – 2008

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.”

Jazz UK – 2008

“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.”

Sunday Mercury – 2008

“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!”

The Vortex – 2008

“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.”
