“a well balanced programme of new material and newly arranged older items, both of the highest quality and all lit up by Georgia’s personal vocal style”
“Silhouette is innovative, lyrically inventive, risky at times and always rewarding. Mancio’s performance – often within arrangements that would expose any weakness – puts her at the top of the ever-growing tree of jazz vocalists”
“as thoughtful, assiduously crafted and lovingly realised an album you’ll hear this year… that grips you to the very end”
Beginnings and endings; roads and journeys; losses and gains: Silhouette, Georgia’s third album, marks the end of her first decade as a professional performer and the beginning of her next as an accomplished writer and interpreter.
A bold collection of originals written in collaboration with Pat Metheny, Tim Lapthorn and Kate Williams merged with classics by Antonio Carlos Jobim, Tom Waits and Styne, Comden and Green: these are songs for our times. Featuring flautist Gareth Lockrane and vocalist Ian Shaw.
Georgia Mancio (voice), Dave Ohm (drums & percussion), Julie Walkington (double bass), John Pearce (piano), Kate Williams (piano), Tim Lapthorn (piano), Dave Colton (guitar), Gareth Lockrane (flutes), Gregor Riddell (cello), Ian Shaw (voice)
