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 Gibbons Artistry demands attention. Gibbons possesses 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, Gibbons has been acquiring a growing chorus of champions since her emergence a decade ago.
For Many Faces of Love, Gibbons has assembled a crew of some of the most skilled musicians in contemporary jazz, led by L.A.-based pianist and arranger Tamir Hendelman, who conjures up the slamming grooves, the feistiness and the jubilation that mark Gibbons singing. The concept of Many Faces of Love is to present songs that take you through four phases of love: Looking for Love, Finding Love, Losing Love, Looking to Re-Connect. Many Faces of Love is something of a song cycle, with Polly singing about different facets of love.
