More plaudits for Georgia’s new album, Finding Home, from esteemed writer Nick Lea on his blog JazzViews.
“The musicians have immersed themselves totally in the arrangements and work together as one unique ensemble bringing the scores to life. Coupled with Georgia’s heartwarming and emotional voice, she just gets better with every new album, the vocalist is reaching a maturity in her work that is placing her at the pinnacle of her craft. She is able to convey the meaning of a song with such passion and conviction even at the slowest of tempos, that every word is imbued with maximum emotion that add a depth to the lyric that could otherwise be missed in lesser hands.”

Jazzwise magazine has awarded 4 stars to Georgia’s new album Finding Home, praising her “poised…pitch-perfect..[and] perfectly formed” vocals.
They also reviewed a live performance at the Watermill Jazz Club last week: “[Mancio’s] singing has now reached an almost sublime level, clarity and poise personified, phrasing with the ensemble or soaring over, intimate yet dynamic, her liaison with Williams’ musical line just or jubilant as the song requires…the entire event was a delight”

Listen to Georgia’s podcast on Jazz Matters about her new album, Finding Home, and various collaborations with Kate Williams, Alan Broadbent, Liane Carroll and Ian Shaw.
“A cracking album – I’ve come to expect nothing less from Georgia…. that I found to be delightful in a thought-provoking way.”
Bebop Spoken Here
“There is an essence of maturity in this album and Georgia Mancio, though still young in jazz, has all the hallmarks and delivery of a far more seasoned performer. She tells the narrative like it is, and her voice has tonal quality which is pleasing and engaging. Music is an art, the musician the craftsmen and women, and on Finding Home there is a sense of being at a masterclass. Great music.”
