Policy Statement

This event is being organised by a local committee of musicians and jazz fans.

Our aim is to promote jazz on the Isle of Wight. Members of the committee will not receive any financial reward. Inspected accounts will be made available on request.

The committee will cover the cost of the main venues and headline acts. This will be funded by sponsorship, ticket sales and other fund-raising activities.

Any subsequent profits will go towards funding future events.

We will encourage other performances during the period. However, we will not act as agents. It will be the responsibility of the performers and venues to negotiate between themselves.

Quadroquadro (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.

Other credits include Bobby McFerrin, Ian Shaw, Liane Carroll, Gwilym Simcock and ReVoice! - her own international voice festival.

Frank HarrisonFrank Harrison 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 Cleydert

Andrew Cleyndert 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
