Georgia Mancio has been nominated in the category of Best Jazz Vocalist year after year in the Parliamentary Jazz Awards and British Jazz Awards. She has five albums to her name and her 2017 album Songbook, co-written with pianist Alan Broadbent, received much acclaim. Georgia's latest project, Finding Home, co-written and led with pianist/composer Kate Williams received a 4 star review from The Guardian for its debut performance and will be released as an album with accompanying tour in the spring.

Now based in London, Georgia produces music that embraces a wide-ranging jazz repertoire alongside influences from her Anglo/Italian/Uruguayan heritage and her own writings.

In 2010 Georgia launched her own international voice festival - ReVoice! - in association with the Pizza Express Jazz Club. To date Georgia has produced 5 annual editions of ReVoice!, performing 44 sets herself and presenting over 160 artists. Collaboration is a key element to Georgia's work and over the past two years she has followed ReVoice! with a project she calls Hang, a series of bespoke collaborations and new writing featuring the cream of the UK’s jazz, latin and improvised music scenes again at Soho's Pizza Express Jazz Club.

There are a number of tracks from Georgia's albums on YouTube, including an introductory video to the Songbook album, but I have chosen this video of her singing The Last Goodbye from Glasgow's 'Jazz Nights At The Quay' series from 2017:

Luca Manning is a young jazz vocalist from Glasgow, Scotland. In 2018, he was voted ‘Rising Star’ at the Scottish Jazz Awards and was also nominated in the ‘Best Vocalist’ category. Now resident in London, Luca is in his second year at the Guildhall School of Music on the BMus (hons) Jazz degree course and has already played major London venues such as Pizza Express Jazz Club and Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club in Soho leading his own ensembles. He has also become a vocal chair holder with the National Youth Jazz Orchestra since January 2018. Listen to him and you can see why.

There are a number of videos by Luca on YouTube, but I have chosen his version of I Should Care, sung here with Alan Benzie at the piano
