O’s Notes: We had to do a double check after we popped this CD in the player. Polly’s name and appearance (an innocent, British, blond girl) didn’t match our expectations of her performance and sound. We were pleasantly surprised and appreciative by her rich, soulful vocals. The music swings and her style rejuvenates classics along with several originals. Polly pours her heart into the blues on “Sack Full of Dreams” and even more so on “Basin Street Blues”. There are as many heartfelt blues as ballads and they are all spot on. If you’re in doubt check out “Midnight Prayer”. This woman can sing!
