TODAY! Polly Gibbons with Strictly Smokin’ Big Band @ Hoochie Coochie Sunday Sept. 16

(Press release).
Strictly Smokin’ have done it again – Anthony Strong, Hailey Tuck, Joe Stilgoe and, in September, the wonderful POLLY GIBBONS will feature with the band at Newcastle’s Hoochie Coochie.
Hot off the back of Jazz FM’s ‘Vocalist of the Year’ nomination, gigs at Montreal Jazz Festival, London’s 606 Club, and a string of dates at New York’s renowned Birdland this month, Polly makes her way north  with her own blend of jazz, blues, and soul to feature with SSBB at Hoochie Coochie.

There’s always this element of surprise from people who haven’t seen her perform,” says James Pearson, Polly’s long-time songwriting collaborator and artistic director at Ronnie Scotts. “She astounds me, too. She’s unpredictable.”
This is certainly another SSBB special guest that is not to be missed.
“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
“Polly Gibbons is unmistakably a class act, getting classier fast.”
★★★★ The Guardian
“Gibbons is a jazz talent whose voice is also steeped in vintage R&B with shades of Aretha
Franklin… A programme that sensitively mixes standards and originals.”
The Sunday Times
“A voice that is to jazz as Adele’s is to pop: rich, powerful, soul-baring.”
★★★★ London Evening Standard
“This is one musical experience that turns out to be bold, brassy and brilliant.”
