Four Plus Three meets Georgia Mancio: Finding Home

New album featuring Kate's Four Plus Three with Georgia Mancio is a collection of songs, old and newly co-written, arranged for voice, piano trio and string quartet, linked by the many concepts of Finding Home.

Finding Home is the maturation of Kate and Georgia’s 10 year collaboration with past performances at Ronnie Scotts, Cleethorpes Jazz Festival and a televised broadcast for BBC Radio Scotland’s prestigious Jazz Nights at The Quay.

Kate’s multi-layered compositions and arrangements reveal their deeper narrative within Georgia’s searing lyric writing and emotive live performances. From the tragedy of the refugee crisis to romantic spoken word groove, reworked classics from Chile, Brazil and the Great American Songbook and a focus on the natural world, loss and hope: Finding Home prompts many questions and delivers multiple answers.

The album, released to huge acclaim in June 2019, and featuring special guest guitarist John Williams (Kate’s father), has been described as “meticulous and poignant … with a depth transcending mere ‘song” (London Jazz News).

Kate Williams Four Plus Three

Kate Williams' Four Plus Three is a new collaboration between acclaimed jazz pianist/composer Kate Williams and the Guastalla string quartet.
Kate first met violinists John Garner and Marie Schreer, the co-leaders of the quartet, whilst working on Bill Evans And The Impressionists at the 2014 Guildhall Jazz Festival. The programme featured works by piano legend Bill Evans which Williams arranged for her jazz trio and full orchestra.
The repertoire for this new project includes material by Bill Evans, Cole Porter and A.C. Jobim as well as originals by Williams. The style of writing and arranging exploits the varied sound pallet of both string quartet and jazz trio, creating contrasts between the improvised and the notated, and between sustained textures and strong grooves. As with her previous arranging ventures, Kate is seeking a fully integrated approach (this is definitely not a jazz trio with string accompaniment!), as this line-up provides a wealth of interesting instrumental sonorities.
The new CD 'Four Plus Three' is released on 8th June 2016.
