Reviews of Georgia Mancio

 

12/10/2015 London Jazz

ALAN BROADBENT/GEORGIA MANCIO SONGBOOK, Pizza Express Jazz Club 2015

"Mancio’s voice sounded fluent and confident, her high strong notes fading perfectly into vibrato....[her] vocal swung in smoky June Christy style, gentle and intimate...[and] with Annie Ross-like effortless accuracy....These were songs of real beauty and sophistication, that surely deserve to join the Standards repertoire- arranged, played and sung with great passion and skill".

GEORGIA MANCIO/NIGEL PRICE/JULIE WALKINGTON TRIO, Lauderdale House 2014

“her voice has taken on an extra resonance and conviction…. her control at the lower end of her range was spine-tingling… just a hint of a wraith-like reference to the great Anita O’Day, without the slightest attempt at simulation. Her intonation was impeccable, her fluidity around the pulse and a feeling of real pleasure derived from her interaction with the other two musicians was just incredibly infectious”

 

26/07/2013 Isle of Wight County Press

GEORGIA MANCIO/NIGEL PRICE/JULIE WALKINGTON TRIO, Newport Jazz Weekend 2013

“Sweet, soulful and spine-tingling….style, finesse and charm… A sublime intensely emotional performance”

 

18/07/2013 Bebop Spoken Here

GEORGIA MANCIO/NIGEL PRICE/JULIE WALKINGTON TRIO, Cadogan Hall 2013

“This girl can interpret a lyric with the best of them adding sweeps and slurs to reshape the song in her own image”

 

19/06/2013 The Jazz Mann

GEORGIA MANCIO/NIGEL PRICE/JULIE WALKINGTON TRIO, Abergavenny 2013

“pure, well enunciated vocals…a real talent for jazz phrasing…a highly skilful storyteller…The air of fragile beauty was haunting and effective”

 

25/04/2013 Rainlore's World Of Music

GEORGIA MANCIO/NIGEL PRICE/JULIE WALKINGTON TRIO, Twickenham Jazz Club 2013

“her power isn’t like a wave that crashes over you but that lapping Mediterranean kind which casts the mind adrift into playful daydreams”

 

01/12/2012 Jazzwise

REVOICE! FESTIVAL, London 2012

“From the impressively fluid phrasing of ‘Willow Weep For Me’ to the heartbreaking intimacy of Milton Nascimento’s ‘Travessia’, her sense of lyrical sweep thrills at every turn“

 

11/10/2011 LondonJazz

REVOICE! FESTIVAL, London 2011

“the archetype of a modern singer who can style-hop at will and produce…thoroughly musical and textually convincing versions of – er – anything”

 

01/07/2010 All About Jazz

GEORGIA MANCIO QUARTET, Aldeburgh Festival 2010

“a superb vocalist ….not afraid to experiment with arrangements and presentation”

 

08/03/2008 John Fordham, The Guardian****

GEORGIA MANCIO QUINTET, Trapeze Album Launch, Pizza Express Jazz Club 2008

“A performer of character, conviction, and relaxed virtuosity…an inventive straight-ahead improviser… Mancio’s music sounds both purposeful and chilled at the same time… [She] has occupied the fringes for a few years without quite finding the spotlight, but she sounds more than ready for it now.”

 

04/03/2008 Jack Massarik, The Evening Standard****

GEORGIA MANCIO QUINTET, Trapeze Album Launch, Pizza Express Jazz Club 2008

“the lethal cool of a Mafioso stiletto… [and] a gravitas that recalled … Chet Baker and Georgie Fame….Georgia Mancio left the crowd begging for more."

 

10/10/2007 Chris Parker, The Vortex Website

GEORGIA MANCIO / TIM LAPTHORN DUO, The Vortex 2007

"Anyone who's heard the debut album by singer Georgia Mancio, Peaceful Place, will not be surprised to hear that she delighted a respectably sized Monday-night audience with a cleverly paced selection of intelligently reworked standards, affecting originals and the odd samba. What was slightly unexpected – given the tasteful restraint that characterises said recording – was the sheer power of her voice and the intimate charm of her stage presence. Performing in a duo with the mellifluous but robust pianist Tim Lapthorn, she not only pulled off the difficult feat of making well-worn standards come up fresh ('All or Nothing at All' particularly vibrant; 'Get Out of Town' featuring a seldom heard introduction, and convincingly substituting sparky resilience for the resigned doominess of Ella Fitzgerald's version), but also showed off her perfect diction (and language skills) by singing in both Portuguese and Spanish. Leavened with just the right number of attractive originals – her album's title-track a moving evocation of a haven of tranquillity – this was an object lesson in how to handle a club date, informal but utterly professional, so that Mancio's and Lapthorn's considerable art, grace and vigour emerged entirely naturally and uncontrivedly from their faultless performance."

 

03/09/2006 Jim McElroy, JazzReview.com

"Georgia Mancio is a vocalist of the highest quality; her voice is 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."

 

01/11/2005 Peter Maguire, Global Jazz Scene

"Georgia has the full package: great voice; highly professional stage presence..and the rare ability to choose wonderful material"

 

28/04/2004 Richard Godwin, The Evening Standard

"Sultry, breathy, Latin-tinged jazz from Georgia - one of the hottest singers on the circuit"

 

01/02/2004 Claire Martin, Jazz Line-up BBC Radio 3

"A singer that I've much admired over the years"
