Alan Broadbent & Georgia Mancio Songbook at The Apex...
Enjoy the exquisite playing and writing partnership between two-time Grammy award-winning jazz pianist/composer Alan Broadbent and stellar vocalist Georgia Mancio at The Apex.
Alan is recognised as one of the world’s leading jazz artists with credits as impressively far-ranging as Charlie Haden, Diana Krall, Natalie Cole, Woody Herman, Johnny Mandel and Paul McCartney.
Georgia has proved herself one of the UK’s most original, adventurous and multi-faceted new artists, with work including Bobby McFerrin, Ian Shaw, Gwilym Simcock, Liane Carroll and her own international voice festival - ReVoice!
Tonight Alan and Georgia present their original Songbook project. Alan’s evocative melodies, sophisticated harmony and peerless arrangers’ 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: The Alan Broadbent / Georgia Mancio Songbook sets the new standards of the future.
“Mancio's velvet tone and sensitive lyricism are as beautiful as ever, but with Broadbent, whose scintillating piano reveals new details in even the best-loved song, they're unmissable” CultureWhisper.com Best Jazz Gigs 2013
