Quadro (meaning ‘picture’ in Italian) is the new trio by award-winning vocalist Georgia Mancio and much-lauded pianist Frank Harrison and bassist Andrew Cleyndert. Together they present jazz and Brazilian standards alongside reinvented classical repertoire by composers including Strayhorn/Ellington, Tom Jobim, Heitor Villa-Lobos, Artie Shaw and Waldemar Henrique.

The group have performed at Reading, Birmingham and Cambridge Jazz Clubs, London’s The Pheasantry and Pizza Express Jazz Club and a sell-out show at 2016 Cheltenham Jazz Festival.

Georgia has been lauded by The Observer as an artist who “has everything covered – technical mastery, expressive range and a remarkable versatility.” Last year she released Songbook – an album co-written with double Grammy-winning jazz pianist/composer Alan Broadbent – with performances in New York and Europe including a sold-out debut headline at Ronnie Scott’s. Other credits include Bobby McFerrin, Ian Shaw, Liane Carroll, Gwilym Simcock and her own festival series ReVoice! and Hang.

Frank has performed globally with Gilad Atzmon, Tim Garland, Peter King, Julian Arguelles, Julian Siegel and Louis Stewart. Described by Ronnie Scott as “one of the most talented young musicians I have heard”, he also leads his own trio with several releases to his name.

Andrew has long been considered “one of our finest bassists” (London Jazz) with stellar credits including Stan Tracey, Annie Ross, Bobby Wellins, Gene Harris, Junior Mance and Benny Green. He is also a bandleader, sound engineer and runs his own label – Trio Records.

“Mancio’s phrasing was just exquisite… Cleyndert shone… Harrison show[ed] just how good he is… the packed audience was hooked” (**** Kind of Jazz)

“Individually, the members of Quadro are absolute masters of their art… the sum of the respective parts lifts [them] to an even higher level of creativity; the interplay within the band was a constant delight… that held the audience truly spellbound“ (The Jazz Mann)

Doors open 1.30pm.
