"The songs, with their poetic and melancholic lyrics, have a distant aroma of Sondheim in their rhythm ... Rodgers & Hart, and Joni Mitchell in their poetry ... a delight to savor slowly ... the fortunate conjunction of these two talents."

Quiet Is The Star

Pre-order: 27 Feb 2021

Released 27 March, pre-order details to follow from 27 Feb. Join Georgia’s mailing list so you don’t miss the date.

Quiet Is The Star is the new album by vocalist/lyricist Georgia Mancio and Grammy-winning pianist/composer Alan Broadbent and the much anticipated companion to  their 2017 Songbook.

The album spotlights the purity and parity of the duo setting in 9 co-written songs exploring the ties we weave in life: sisterly, maternal, romantic, universal. One voice, one piano, one dialogue. Georgia’s deeply nuanced singing (“sublime, clarity and poise personified, intimate yet dynamic”, Jazzwise) is embraced by Alan’s rhapsodic solo piano, indicating the breadth of his musicianship, from accompanist to Big Band/orchestral leader.

Recorded in late 2019, it re-unites with Songbook producer Andrew Cleyndert and artist Simon Manfield, whose bespoke watercolours perfectly accompany the subtle variations of mood.

The album will be released 27 March, alongside  The Songs Of Alan Broadbent & Georgia Mancio  – a book of 33 co-written works from both albums (Songbook and Quiet Is The Star) and many more besides.
