Dizzy Gillespie Symphony Sessions sign to CAMI


We are delighted to announce that the Dizzy Gillespie Symphony Sessions are now signed to Columbia Artists Management. 

For Dizzy Gillespie, playing in a small combo was never enough. His artistry compelled him to seek and to create larger ensembles

The Symphony Sessions are now led by bassist John Lee, who brings together Dizzy Gillespie alumni performers with local symphonies to continue this wonderful legacy.

If you would like any further information on the Symphony Sessions, please contact Emily T. Yoon at CAMI on (212) 841 9509 or emilyyoon@cami.com

Polly Gibbons Review – bluesandsoul.com

A great review for Polly Gibbons opening for Gladys Knight in Nottingham, from bluesandsoul.com:

“Polly’s vocals were firing on all cylinders tonight too. A really powerful performance, lots of light and shade in the material giving her the opportunity to show off her immaculate control, impressive range and above all else, her soul chops. To label Polly a jazz singer, would be doing her a disservice. She does that genre proud, but at the same time she is a born soul singer. Put the two together and you have something, or rather someone very special. Well, you have Suffolk-born Polly Gibbons.”
