Jazz Hot (France)

Born in Auckland, pianist Alan Broadbent (Natalie Cole, Diana Krall and Charlie Haden…) is anything but a beginner. He joins here with the young British singer Georgia Mancio, revealed at Ronnie Scott’s, noticed by Bobby McFerrin and David Lynx. The osmosis is total. Alan wrote all the themes and Georgia wrote all the lyrics. Soberly but effectively accompanied by double bass and drums, this music, however original, sounds like a brilliant medley of standards from the American repertoire.  New Zealander pianist and the English singer blithely .. span borders .
