“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

“Gibbons is a big-voiced, soulful belter of the old school, who can also deliver an intimate and hushed performance with conviction - as evidenced on a theatrical, emotionally charged ‘Wild is the Wind’ - thanks to her thorough command of her art."
- Eddie Myer, Jazz Views

Multi-talented, critically acclaimed British jazz/blues singer/songwriter Polly Gibbons offers us Is It Me…?, a 12-track collection that fully embraces the inspiring, expansive array of American jazz, soul and blues. This album features a buoyant seven-piece horn section, enhancing Gibbons’s R&B and big band swing vocal stylings.

From the label:

This album was mastered using our 2xHD proprietary system. In order to achieve the most accurate reproduction of the original recording we tailor our process specifically for each project, using a selection from our pool of state-of-the-art audiophile components and connectors. The process begins with a transfer to analog from the original 24bits/96kHz resolution master, using cutting edge D/A converters. The analog signal is then sent through a hi-end tube pre-amplifier before being recorded directly in DSD 5.6 MHz using the Merging Horus/Hapi In and the dCS Vivaldi Clock. All connections used in the process are made of OCC silver cable.

Each format (96kHz, 192kHz, DSD 2.8 MHz and DSD 5.6 MHz) was created using Merging Horus/Hapi A/D converter, calibrated to the required format, and a dCS Vivaldi clock.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
