Georgia on their minds at Herts Jazz Club
PUBLISHED: 09:58 22 June 2012
THE Georgia Mancio Quartet is playing Herts Jazz Club from 7.45pm on Sunday.
An award-winning jazz vocalist, lyricist, producer, festival director and label manager, Georgia has established herself as one of the UK’s most important new artists.
Her music is a reflection of her Anglo-Latino background. Although she is predominantly a jazz standards singer born and raised in the UK, her musical lineage goes back first to her Italian grandparents – an opera singer and concert pianist – and then to her Uruguayan great-grandmother, also a pianist.
She covers a wide breadth of material from Fats Waller to Kenny Wheeler, Tom Waits, samba, originals, blues, Chilean folk and Italian pop and switches from English to Italian to Spanish to Brazilian Portuguese
The jazz club is held at Campus West, Welwyn Garden City, and tickets are £11 online at http://www.hawthornetheatre.co.uk/whatsonstage.html, £13 on the door and £5 for students and under-21s.
