“All credit to sublime singer and curator, Georgia Mancio, for putting together this vibrant and exciting … celebration of all things vocal”
Programming, presenting and performing over a whopping 9 nights, award-winning vocalist/lyricist/producer Georgia Mancio (Bobby McFerrin, Sheila Jordan, Ian Shaw, Gwilym Simcock) announces the 3rd edition of her international voice festival, ReVoice!
Over the past two years, Georgia has proved an innovative programmer – Karin Krog, Diana Torto with Kenny Wheeler, John Taylor and Palle Danielsson, Rebecca Parris, David Linx, Maria Pia de Vito and Norma Winstone. At ReVoice! 2011 she gave Gregory Porter his very first UK booking. One of the music world’s fastest rising stars, Porter is now returning to open this year’s festival. Presented once again by The Pizza Express Jazz Club, ReVoice! 2012 is also collaborating with international producers, ESIP/Global Mix, on two concerts by the incredible Raul Midón and Tuck & Patti at The Union Chapel, Time Out Venue of the Year. Other highlights include: the long-awaited return of Jhelisa Anderson; ex-Basie powerhouse Jamie Davis; the ever-lauded Liane Carroll, and the UK debuts of rising stars, Becca Stevens Band and astonishing acapella group, Mycale, performing the music of founder/composer John Zorn.
ReVoice! is a Festival within a Festival. Georgia’s boundless imagination and commitment to the art of improvisation see her paired with some of the greatest players on the UK scene. This year, her impressive collaborators are: Jason Rebello, Jim Hart, Laurence Cottle, James Pearson, Andrew Cleyndert, John Parricelli, Pete Churchill, Gareth Lockrane and Geoff Gascoyne, and together they will create an entirely different musical experience every night.
“packed with high-class artists and steered by an original vision”
“wholly remarkable…. a glorious marathon of performances”
“In its brief existence, ReVoice! has already carved out a unique and important niche in the capital’s jazz life”
