Songbook is the exquisite new album of originals Georgia has co-written with double Grammy award-winning pianist/composer/arranger Alan Broadbent (Natalie Cole, Charlie Haden, PaulMcCartney).
A haunting, hip and harmonious collection of stories within stories. Alan’s sophisticated melodies and peerless arranger’s ear find their perfect match in Georgia’s superbly crafted lyrics of both beauty and bite. Through journeys and resting places, childhood and old age; from bebop to brooding ballads and bossa novas: Songbook continues the lineage of the great jazz writing partnerships but thematically and musically looks to setting the new standards of the future with poise, passion and unmistakable personality.
This beautiful, groundbreaking album features bespoke illustrations by acclaimed artist, Simon Manfield, and was launched with a sell out headline show at the world famous Ronnie Scott’s.
Voice & lyrics: Georgia Mancio; piano & music: Alan Broadbent; double bass: Oli Hayhurst; drums & percussion: Dave Ohm; produced by Andrew Cleyndert.
