ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“one of the most formidable songwriting partnerships of the 21st century” - Jazz Views

“If we awarded stars to albums this one would rate a whole galaxy” - Bebop Spoken Here

“An album of outstanding beauty and power” - Jazzwise 4 **** Recommended

“rare to find a songwriting and performing partnership so well matched” - The Observer 4****

“Songs of real beauty…that surely deserve to join the Standards repertoire” - London Jazz

“both modern and timeless” - Jazz Weekly USA

“This incredible music with these amazing lyrics are not to be missed. Not many people out there, if at all collaborating like Alan and Georgia” - Sheila Jordan



Songbook is the exquisite new album of originals co-written by double Grammy award-winning pianist/composer/arranger Alan Broadbent (Natalie Cole, Charlie Haden, Paul McCartney) and award-winning vocalist/lyricist Georgia Mancio (Bobby McFerrin, Ian Shaw, ReVoice! Festival).

A haunting, hip and harmonious collection of stories within stories. Alan’s sophisticated melodies and peerless arranger’s 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: Songbook continues the lineage of the great jazz writing partnerships but thematically and musically looks to setting the new standards of the future with poise, passion and unmistakable personality.

This beautiful, groundbreaking album features bespoke illustrations by acclaimed artist, Simon Manfield, and was launched with a sell out headline show at the world famous Ronnie Scott’s and followed by performances in Europe and New York (Dizzy's, JALC and Mezzrow).
