Our thanks to the brilliantly comprehensive blog The Jazz Breakfast for their recent ReVoice! preview.
Read what they have to say about this “vocal smorgasbord masterminded by singer Georgia Mancio” here.
As part of our 5th anniversary celebration we are delighted to be welcoming back one of our very first ReVoice! artists.
In 2010 we presented just 4 artists over 5 nights and one of these was the spectacular Rebecca Parris – a jazz singer championed by the great Carmen McRae and who has worked with jazz royalty Wynton Marsalis, Dizzy Gillespie and Count Basie among many others.
Georgia Mancio selects her favourite big band tracks and talks about her musical career and influences. She also discusses the upcoming ReVoice! and her new playing and writing collaboration with two time Grammy-winning pianist Alan Broadbent.
Music from Anita O’Day, Alan Broadbent and Lambert, Hendricks and Ross.
Our thanks to Julian Joseph and the team at BBC Radio 3’s fantastic Jazz LineUp for interviewing Festival Director, Georgia Mancio, about this year’s festival.
