It’s a welcome return to an established Jazz Diva, **Best Singer in 2021 Parliamentary Jazz Awards** lyricist and producer, Georgia Mancio,
She is one of Europe’s most respected, adventurous and multi-faceted artists. Her multi-lingual music references classic jazz and Latin alongside her own astonishing writing, always stamped with an unfailing emotional integrity, mark her as a unique jazz voice.
In March 2021, Georgia released her 8th album – Quiet Is The Star, and the second in partnership with Grammy-winning pianist/composer Alan Broadbent. Their first album, Songbook (2017), was launched at a sold out headline show at Ronnie Scott’s (“unequivocally, one of the gigs of the year” - Jazzwise) with subsequent performances across Europe and the US, including famed New York clubs Dizzy’s (Jazz at Lincoln Center), Kitano and Mezzrow.
Georgia’s previous release, Finding Home (2019), was co-produced with tonight’s pianist/composer Kate Williams and her acclaimed Four Plus Three ensemble with special guest classical guitarist John Williams. Critically lauded it won Best Album in 2020 Parliamentary Jazz Awards.
From 2010-2014 Georgia produced her now iconic ReVoice! Festival in association with the Pizza Express Jazz Club.
Since 2017 Georgia has produced 3 editions of her new series, Hang, showcasing her ever-evolving creativity as a curator and her collaborative kudos and versatility with several top artists.
