Vocalist Luca Manning has recently been enthralling festival audiences across Scotland. With musical maturity beyond his years, his clarity and authenticity make jazz compositions new and old sound timeless and fresh. A gifted improviser as well as singer, he has performed at the Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dundee jazz festivals, where he opened for Becca Stevens. Now resident in London, Luca is fast making a name for himself, already invited to perform as a guest with Lianne Carroll at Ronnie Scott’s at her Christmas show.
Luca’s newly formed Sextet brings together a strong, like-minded set of musicians who each bring their own authentic voice to the music while working seamlessly together to create magical soundscapes.

“Youthful, gorgeous, comforting sound…”

Seonaid Aitken, Jazz on BBC Radio Scotland
