“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 News

“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 (Best of 2014 Albums)

“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

“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...Mancio sings beautifully, negotiating the intricacies of these standards with a real joie de vivre”

Come Rain or Come Shine

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.
