Date Time Event Description
Oct-23-18 12:00 AM The Polly Gibbons Band “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://zincjazz.com.

Oct-29-18 08:00 PM Guitar Masters Series: Jimmy Bruno Trio "Jazz guitarists just dont come any better. Jimmy Bruno combines a dazzling virtuoso technique with drive and swing to produce, in concert and on record, superb and inspired lyrical improvisations."—Maurice J. Summerfield, author of The Jazz Guitar Guide and The Classical Guitar Guide Acclaimed jazz guitarist Jimmy Bruno brings his formidable trio to Zinc jazz club on Monday, October 29. He's supported by bassist Harvie S and drummer David F. Gibson. One of the most critically acclaimed jazz guitarists performing today, Jimmy Bruno came to prominence as a jazz musician in the 1990s, after a successful twenty-year career as a sought-after commercial guitarist and session musician. After a whirlwind round-the-world tour as the youngest member of the Buddy Rich Orchestra, he went on to play guitar in orchestras for Frank Sinatra, Anthony Newley, Doc Severinsen, Lena Horne, and many more music icons. Additionally, he spent many years as an LA session musician working with Tommy Tedesco. But his first love was always jazz, and by the time he was in his mid-thirties, he was ready to come out of the background and into the spotlight. The first step was moving back East. Jimmy has been invited to play at many major music festivals, including the JVC, Berks, Vail, and Concord Jazz Festivals, among many others. Additionally, he has collaborated with legendary and highly regarded musicians such as Joe Beck, Bobby Watson, Jack Wilkins, Tal Farlow (at Farlow's 75th Birthday Concert), Howard Alden, Christian McBride, Kurt Elling and many more. Jimmy was also one of an invited group of 30 guitarists chosen to play at a tribute concert for Barney Kessel and was given the honor of opening the tribute (with Howard Alden). He also has participated in tributes to jazz giants Herb Ellis and Johnny Smith. Showtimes are at 8 pm & 10:00 pm. Tickets: $20. For more info call (212) 477-9462 or visit http://zincjazz.com.
