Polly Gibbons is one of the most respected and talked about singers of her generation. Since first hitting the UK jazz scene more than 10 years ago, while still in her teens, Polly has developed into a consummate performer with a sultry, distinctive style, as much at home singing tender jazz ballads as she is performing rockin' R&B classics. Nominated Vocalist of the Year by Jazz FM, she has also firmly established herself in the US, with shows in Florida, Boston, Minneapolis, Kansas City, Oklahoma City, Los Angeles and Birdland in NYC and three albums with American label Resonance Records, including her latest ‘All I Can Do’. For this EFG London Jazz Festival, performance, Polly will be joined by her frequent collaborator and co-writer, pianist James Pearson (also the Artistic Director of Ronnie Scott's), bassist Neville Malcolm and drummer Saleem Raman. Polly also promises to perform several new songs! A very old friend (Polly performed her first London gig here, back in the day) it’s with great pleasure that we welcome this remarkable singer back to the 606.
