SAMARA JOY featuring The Pasquale Grasso Trio
With a voice as smooth as velvet, SAMARA JOY’s star seems to rise with each performance. Following her win at the 2019 Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition, she is recording her debut recording, which features Samara backed by the Pasquale Grasso Trio.
Not yet 21, Samara has already performed in many of the great jazz venues in New York City including Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola, The Blue Note, and Mezzrow. She’s also worked with jazz greats Christian McBride, Pasquale Grasso, Jon Faddis, Kirk Lightsey, Cyrus Chestnut, and NEA Jazz Master.
