Live at ReVoice! – 4* Evening Standard review
“golden-voiced Mancio…shows off her vocal chops”
A live album from golden-voiced Mancio, an award-winning Londoner who has worked with the likes of Bobby McFerrin and opened for Milton Nascimento.
Cherry-picked from three years’ worth of annual collaborations at ReVoice!, Mancio’s international voice festival, this collection of 12 duets both shows off her vocal chops and highlights the talents of a wealth of well-known accompanists.
Covers of material by everyone from Carole King to Bowie are given new life, while jazz standard Just Friends is lifted by the sublime playing of pianist Robert Mitchell and a new original, Bendita, benefits from the connection between Mancio and her piano-playing co-writer, Tom Cawley.
She plays Pizza Express Jazz Club on Monday as part of the EFG London Jazz Festival.
