Gateshead International Jazz Festival

The Alan Broadbent & Georgia Mancio Songbook Quartet

Northern Rock Foundation Hall

Songbook is the exquisite playing and writing partnership between double GRAMMY award-winning jazz pianist/composer/arranger Alan Broadbent (Diana Krall, Woody Herman, Paul McCartney) and stellar vocalist/lyricist Georgia Mancio (Ian Shaw, Bobby McFerrin, ReVoice! Festival).

Alan and Georgia began performing together in 2013, developing the collaboration to create an entirely new Songbook set for release as an album in 2017.

Through journeys and resting places, childhood and old age; from bebop to brooding ballads and bossa novas, Songbook continues the lineage of the great jazz writers, setting the new standards of the future with poise, passion and unmistakable personality.

“A new songbook, beautifully delivered: that’s surely worth waiting 50 years for.” The Arts Desk

“These were songs of real beauty and sophistication, that surely deserve to join the Standards repertoire – arranged, played and sung with great passion and skill.” London Jazz News
