At age 23, Samara Joy is already a phenom. Winner of two Grammy Awards and the Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition, she’s performed with such legends as Christian McBride and Bill Charlap. She possesses a voice that is rich and velvety, yet precociously refined: “The close precision and frothy power of her voice stand out immediately … so does the depth of her comfort within the jazz tradition,” attests The New York Times. With ease and a preternatural assurance,  Joy swings through understated yet powerful renditions of jazz standards.
