Georgia Mancio and Alan Broadbent 10th Anniversary Tour 14-19th November 2023


To celebrate what seems hardly possible – a decade of their globally acclaimed collaboration, double-Grammy-winning jazz pianist/composer Alan Broadbent (Natalie Cole, Diana Krall, Pat Metheny) and multi-award-winning vocalist/lyricist Georgia Mancio (Kate Williams, ReVoice! Festival, Ian Shaw), have announced six UK dates from 14th -19th November 2023.


Reuniting for the first time in person since 2019, they are joined by long-term collaborators, bassist/producer Andrew Cleyndert, and drummer Dave Ohm, to play a series of dates, finishing with an apt return to the scene of only their second appearance together in 2013- the Pheasantry in London which coincides with the final weekend of the London Jazz Festival.


With stellar reviews under their belt, the pair’s catalogue of 40+ songs has drawn comparisons to Rodgers and Hart, Cole Porter, Joni Mitchell, and Stephen Sondheim. It began in 2014 (so for the eagle-eyed reader, it is actually just under a decade of working together but who’s counting?), with Alan inviting Georgia to conceive a lyric for ‘The Long Goodbye’, originally composed for Charlie Haden’s Quartet West. By 2017, they had launched their first album of originals, 'Songbook', in two world-renowned jazz clubs: London’s Ronnie Scott’s and New York’s Dizzy’s Coca Cola, Jazz at Lincoln Center. Their 2021 follow-up, 'Quiet Is The Star' was among the Arts Desk, and Jazzwise ‘Albums of The Year’, and was released alongside their illustrated book of 33 works, 'The Songs of Alan Broadbent and Georgia Mancio'. Other notable engagements have included: the Krakow and Rochester International Jazz Festivals; Sage Gateshead and Pizza Express Jazz Club (U.K); Birdland (Germany); NOSPR(Poland); Kitano and Mezzrow (U.S). With virtuosic performances, both profound and joyous, intimate, and epic, “this exquisite yet potent series of reflections on the human condition is too good to miss” (The Jazz Rag).
