Judy Carmichael's Jazz Inspired
In a time that celebrates the extreme, acrobatic singing of American Idle style contestants, British vocalist Georgia Mancio is unusual. Her poetic, subtle approach to delivering a song has garnered international fans and multiple awards, most recently Best Vocalist in the 2021 Parliamentary Jazz Awards.
Georgia pairs her singing and lyric writing talents with another soulful musician, multi-Grammy winning pianist/composer Alan Broadbent on their new CD, Quiet Is The Star. The songs from this CD and earlier work is collected in their recently published book, The Songs of Alan Broadbent and Georgia Mancio, featuring all of their 33 originals, co-written between 2014 and 2020. Georgia talked to me from her home in London in August 2021.
