Album Info

Georgia’s debut album, Peaceful Place, was released in Autumn 2003 and gained attention for its airy simplicity and charming line-ups of duos and trios with some of the UK’s finest jazz musicians.

A mixture of jazz standards; Brazilian and Italian bossa; modern jazz classics and originals, it led to an appearance on Radio 4’s prestigious Loose Ends and further airplay on: Jazz FM; Humphrey Littleton’s Best of Jazz (Radio 2), Jazz Line-up and Jazz Record Requests (Radio 3). There have also been interviews with Sky Digital, RBF (Belgium/France), Radio Citta Futura (Italy) and an half-hour special on LaGuagua (Radio Palermo, Argentina).
