The winner of the 2019 Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition is backed by the Pasquale Grasso Trio on this major debut.
Samara Joy is a singing star in the ascendancy. The young vocalist attracted attention in 2019 after winning the Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition. Now, the 21-year-old announces her self-titled debut release, which puts her spin on jazz standards from the Great American Songbook. Produced by Grammy-nominated veteran Matt Pierson, she’s joined by jazz guitar virtuoso Pasquale Grasso and his trio (Ari Roland and Kenny Washington) for a release that furthers Joy’s reputation as one of America’s most promising young jazz vocalists. In Echternach, she will present her album, which she released in mid-2021 at Whirlwind Recordings.
