Award-winning jazz vocalist, lyricist and producer, Georgia Mancio is one of Europe's most respected, adventurous and multi-faceted new artists. Her multi-lingual music references Jazz and Latin alongside her own astonishing writing, always stamped with an unfailing emotional integrity.
In summer 2018 Georgia made her US debut at the Rochester International Jazz Festival and Kitano (NY) with her song-writing partner Grammy-winning pianist/composer, Alan Broadbent. Other credits include Bobby McFerrin, Liane Carroll, Ian Shaw, Bobby Wellins, Darius Brubeck, Pat Metheny.
Georgia is joined by saxophonist Tony Kofi. Tony is a British Jazz multi-instrumentalist born of Ghanaian parents. He plays Alto, Baritone, Soprano, Tenor saxophones and flute. Having cut his teeth in the 'Jazz Warriors' of the early 90’s, award-winning saxophonist Tony Kofi has gone on to establish himself as a musician, teacher and composer of some authority and his fluent and fiery hard-bop style makes him constantly in demand.
Tony has played/recorded with many groups including 'US-3' The World Saxophone Quartet, Courtney Pine, Donald Byrd, Eddie Henderson, The David Murray Big Band, Sam Rivers Rivbe Big band, Andrew Hill Big Band, Abdullah Ibrahim, Macy Gray, Julian Joseph Big band, Harry Connick Jr and Ornette Coleman.
