Polly Gibbons descends from a grand tradition of jazz and blues women whose singing exudes strength, defiance, and sassy wit. There are many pretenders to that throne, but Polly's artistry demands attention. British-born and just thirty when she made this album, Polly has a raspy, lived-in tone, a walloping sense of swing, and a dramatic flair that grabs the heart. Emotionally, her singing ranges from a slow burn to a bonfire; interpretively, she always rings true.

In London jazz circles, Polly is acquiring a growing chorus of champions. Peter Quinn of the monthly magazine Jazzwise pronounced her "a truly exceptional, once-in-a-generation talent, possessing a voice of such sizzling intensity and raw emotion you could fry an egg on it." After hearing her at Ronnie Scott's in London, Van Morrison acknowledged her "great voice." Johnny Mandel attended her American debut show in February 2014. The venerated arranger and composer--who has written for Peggy Lee, Frank Sinatra, and Shirley Horn--said afterward: "They don't come along very often, but this one's a star."
