London Jazz News – October 2014

Review of Carmen Lundy / Georgia Mancio and Dave Newton / ReVoice! 2014 roundup

“a real coming of age. This well-programmed vocal jazz series, now in its fifth year, has that air of being solidly established….Another thing to be valued is that Georgia Mancio has created a good listening audience at these gigs. The sets she does at the opening of each concert definitely help to set the tone, to prepare the ground for the headliners” 

Financial Times – October 2014

Review of Carmen Lundy at Pizza Express Jazz Club

“Words tumble like scat and soar between registers while syllables, stretched almost to breaking point, gain a hint of vibrato before ending powerfully with precision”

FT, Carmen Lundy review, Oct 2014

 

 

The Arts Desk – Oct 2014

Sandra Nkake / Georgia Mancio review

“In a single set, accompanied by flautist and controller of the electronics, Jî Drû, Nkaké gave a stunningly complete display, as voice, accompaniment, movement and stage presence combined to project her mesmerising, leonine charisma”

“Georgia Mancio … gave a debut of her and [pianist Tom] Cawley’s original work, which in its naturalism, psychological subtlety and domestic focus, was everything Nkaké’s wasn’t. There were a couple of perfectly-pitched covers, but perhaps of most interest were Mancio’s own lyrics, which, very unusually for jazz songs, take an interest in everyday life. … From the giddiest spectacle to the most intimate human concern, this was a gig with everything to offer. A triumph of both programming and performance”

 

Jazzwise – Oct 2014

Sandra Nkake review

“the wonder of Nkaké ’s voice, which has a weighty, full-bodied tone and an operatic upper register in which notes are thinned out and embroidered into existence like lengths of ornate silk”

All About Jazz – Sept 2014

“The ReVoice! Festival’s success is due to many factors: intelligent programming, audience-friendly venues and talented and entertaining performers are all crucial. So, too, is the dynamism of the festival’s founder and director, Georgia Mancio—herself one of the UK scene’s top singers. One theme comes across particularly strongly, encompassing performance, organisation and programming—collaboration. It’s a theme that Mancio was only too happy to discuss, as were two of the 2014 festival’s stars—British pianist and singer Joe Stilgoe and American vocalist and percussionist Vinx”

 M Magazine  – Sept 2014
