Jazz, blues and soul have deep American roots, but apparently those roots also grow in the English countryside. That's where Polly Gibbons is from. She's a British jazz singer with a powerful soulful voice, which one British jazz critic said has "such sizzling intensity and raw emotion, you could fry an egg on it."

Polly Gibbons is performing Tuesday night at Ryles Jazz Club in Cambridge.
