“Gibbons has got such a gorgeous sound, range and swinging sense of time that she could probably set the house on fire with nothing more than a book of nursery rhymes.”
—BBC Music Magazine
Acclaimed British vocalist Polly Gibbons brings her band to the Zinc jazz club on Tuesday, October 23. She’s supported by pianist Keith Brown, guitarist Paul Bollenback and bassist Richie Goods.
Polly has cultivated her craft and eclecticism over the past decade, performing at all the leading UK jazz clubs, international festivals and as a regular at the legendary venue Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, where she has sung with the All-Stars, led by pianist and house musical director James Pearson.
“There’s always this element of surprise from people who haven’t seen her perform,” says Pearson, Polly’s longtime songwriting collaborator and arranger. “She astounds me, too. She’s unpredictable.” In 2016, she opened the sold-out UK tours for George Benson and Gladys Knight and had two acclaimed performances at the Royal Albert Hall. She was also a featured singer with the Liverpool Philharmonic in a presentation of the music and life story of John Lennon.
Polly is quickly establishing herself in the States as well, with shows these past few years in Florida, Boston, Minneapolis, Kansas City, Oklahoma City, Los Angeles and Birdland in NYC.
Showtime at 6:00 pm. Tickets: $20 advance / $25 day of show. For more info call (212) 477-9462 or visit https://www.zincjazz.com.
