Georgia Mancio Georgia Mancio

Award-winning jazz vocalist and lyricist, Georgia Mancio, is one of the UK’s most important and original new artists. A performer of pure class and integrity, Georgia has proved herself a true improviser with an unfailing flow, innate musicality and a boundless and bold imagination. Her music embraces her Anglo/Italian/Uruguayan background: seamlessly performing in five languages and interpreting Fats Waller, Chick Corea, Pat Metheny, Tom Waits, David Bowie, Kenny Wheeler, The Beatles, Brazilian samba, Chilean folk and Italian pop often with her own beautifully crafted lyrics.

She has worked with Bobby McFerrin, Sheila Jordan, Ian Shaw, Liane Carroll, Jason Rebello, Gwilym Simcock, James Pearson, Jim Mullen, Nikki Iles, Jim Hart, Laurence Cottle, Gareth Lockrane, Michael Janisch, Kate Williams and Bobby Wellins among many others. She has played several residencies at Ronnie Scott's opening for Monty Alexander, Cedar Walton, Milton Nascimento, Joey DeFrancesco, Ramsey Lewis, Steve Smith, Lee Retinue, Ray Gelato and Dave Holland’s Overtone Quartet. She has produced 3 albums (Peaceful Place, Trapeze and Silhouette) on her own label, Roomspin Records. BBC Radio 3’s Jazz Line-Up have twice broadcast her live concerts: with Darius Brubeck in 2011 and with John Parricelli in 2013. Georgia has also been the featured vocalist with Frank Griffith’s Nonet since 2008 and in 2005 beat contestants from all over the globe to take first prize in the Brussels International Young Jazz Singers’ Competition.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
