Album Description

Available at: http://www.georgiamancio.com/songbook “If we awarded stars to albums this one would rate a whole galaxy” Bebop Spoken Here “An album of outstanding beauty and power” Jazzwise 4 **** Recommended Songbook is the exquisite new album of originals Alan has co-written with award-winning European vocalist/lyricist Georgia Mancio (Bobby McFerrin, Ian Shaw, ReVoice! Festival). A haunting, hip and harmonious collection of stories within stories. Alan’s sophisticated melodies and peerless arranger’s ear find their perfect match in Georgia’s superbly crafted lyrics of both beauty and bite. Through journeys and resting places, childhood and old age; from bebop to brooding ballads and bossa novas: Songbook continues the lineage of the great jazz writing partnerships but thematically and musically looks to setting the new standards of the future with poise, passion and unmistakable personality. This beautiful, groundbreaking album features bespoke illustrations by acclaimed artist, Simon Manfield, and was launched with a sell out headline show at the world famous Ronnie Scott’s. “special” Kind of Jazz 4 **** “an exciting and sophisticated new partnership…superb” All About Jazz 4 1/2 **** “superb life-drawn lyrics [sung] with clarity and feeling” Sandy Brown Jazz
