"flitting between jazz and Latin with consummate ease... Mancio's captivating approach refreshes both genres...It's all delightful: the combination of rhythmic and emotional intelligence is stunning"

Manchester Evening News

“an airy, gossamer voice … unusual song choices… A lovely album” 

The Scotsman

“a force to be reckoned with…her musicality and inspired choice of material mark her out as…one to watch”   

BBC Online

“taste, originality and understated eloquence…..[the] album…displays those qualities in abundance and should put her well and truly on the map.”  

The Observer

“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.”  

Jazz UK

Trapeze

album info

From English to Italian to Spanish to Brazilian Portuguese: a Rodgers and Hart standard rubbing shoulders with a Chilean folk song; a Cuban classic sitting alongside a show-tune; an Italian pop song nestled between two blues and three very different sambas paying homage to the great composers of Brazil past and present, via David Bowie in Portuguese.

This is Trapeze, the follow-up to Georgia’s debut, Peaceful Place, and the culmination of two years’ live work with her band.
