The Pheasantry (Chelsea)

The song “Body And Soul”could have been written with Polly Gibbons in mind. Polly is one of our most distinctive voices, with an expressive, passionate style, creating tender feelings that touch international audiences. It’s a welcome return by Polly Gibbons to the Jazz Divas 2022 series after she wowed a sold out crowd a couple of years ago. For this Jazz Divas 2022 concert Polly gives voice not only to the music of great soulful musicians, including Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, Ray Charles and Nina Simone among others, but also showcases her creativity as an original song writer.

“Polly Gibbons is unmistakably a class act, getting classier fast.”

The Guardian

Polly is a major presence on the UK Jazz scene, having been nominated twice as "Best Jazz Vocalist" by JAZZ FM and the BBC. She embraces the inspiring expansiveness of American Jazz, Blues, Soul and R&B. 

Her repertoire and the style with which she performs it, have led her to appear at the Royal Albert Hall, opening with George Benson and Gladys Knight and at the legendary Birdland Jazz Club and Ronnie Scott’s. Her music and her voice have a broad appeal to music lovers - and her ongoing touring over the last few years in the USA has garnered her many new fans. 

No better artist to perform in our Jazz Divas 2022 series and with the remarkable James Pearson – music director of Ronnie Scott’s, at the piano - a night not to be missed!'
