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

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.
