03/09/2006 JazzReview.com

"Peaceful Place is an album full of gentle surprises that will enchant and delight you. Mancio possesses one of the finest and most supple voices in jazz, she can sing just about any style and deliver it very convincingly, be it a standard or one of her own compositions.... The numbers "Too Close For Comfort", "Everybody's Song But My Own" and "Too Young to go Steady" let you hear the ease with which Ms Mancio delivers her own renditions of these songs; they flow and ebb seemingly at will. These are the kind of talents reserved for only a handful of singers......Georgia Mancio is a vocalist of the highest quality…a shining example of what jazz vocalists should strive to reach. She has a voice of timeless elegance that will only continue to enchant for years to come”

 

01/05/2004 Derek Ansell, Jazz Journal International

"Spin this one a few times, you could find you have Georgia on your mind."

 

01/03/2004 Chris Parker, JARS

"whatever she sings, Mancio...demonstrates two increasingly rare qualities: taste and restraint."

 

01/02/2004 Chris Ingham, Mojo

"There's a delightful, almost diffident modesty to this debut by singer Mancio...[whose] phrasing has assurance and allure."

 

01/01/2003 Humphrey Lyttelton, Best of Jazz, Radio 2

“the seductive voice of British singer Georgia Mancio on her debut album – and it’s a good one too”

 

01/01/2003 Peter Quinn, Jazzwise

“[her] undeniable strengths lie in her lightness of touch, restraint and absolute clarity….Mancio seems entirely at ease here, grabbing the lyric by the scruff of the neck”
