Info zu Linger Awhile

Was für eine Stimme, was für ein Jazz-Feeling! In den USA hat die 22 Jahre junge New Yorkerin Samara Joy nicht nur mit ihrem ersten Preis bei der “Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition” und mit Auftritten auf Festivals und in Jazz Clubs zahlreiche Fans, darunter einige prominente, für sich gewonnen. Auch auf Tik Tok hat sie schon Millionen Klicks generiert, und das obwohl sie auf jede Art von Schnickschnack verzichtet und ihr Jazzgesang als geradezu klassisch zu bezeichnen ist.

Verve Records, das Label, das Aufnahmen legendärer Sängerinnen wie Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday und Nina Simone im Katalog hat, führt diese Tradition nun weiter, hat Samara Joy unter Vertrag genommen und veröffentlicht am 23. September ihr Major-Label-Debüt “Linger Awhile”. Eine erste Auskopplung, der Standard "Can’t Get Out Of This Mood” von Frank Loesser und Jimmy McHugh, stellt die junge Dame mit der ungewöhnlich reifen Stimme jetzt all denen vor, die sie bislang verpasst haben sollten.

"Ich fühle mich zutiefst geehrt, Teil eines Ensembles zu sein, das so viele meiner größten stimmlichen Inspirationen enthält: Sarah, Billie, Ella und Betty, um nur einige zu nennen", sagt Samara über ihr Verve-Debüt. "Teil dieser Linie zu sein, ist demütigend, und ich werde all die Inspiration, die ich von ihnen erhalten habe, weiterhin nutzen, um meine eigene einzigartige Reise als Sängerin und Künstlerin zu verfolgen." (Samara Joy)

Samara Joy
With a voice as smooth as velvet, SAMARA JOY’s star seems to rise with each performance. Following her winning the 2019 Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition, she is currently recording her debut recording, which will feature Samara backed by the Pasquale Grasso Trio.

Growing up in New York, music was a pervasive presence, due to the inspiration of her paternal grandparents, Elder Goldwire and Ruth McLendon, who led the well-known Philadelphia-based gospel group, The Savettes. Her father toured with the renowned Gospel artist Andrae Crouch, and her home was filled with the sounds of not only her father’s songs and songwriting process, but the inspiration of many Gospel and R&B artists, including Stevie Wonder, Lalah Hathaway, George Duke, Musiq Soulchild, Kim Burrell, Commissioned, and many others.

“Although I didn’t grow up singing in church,” explains Samara, “I constantly heard my family singing inspirational music together, which instilled in me an appreciation for my musical lineage. Through musicals in middle school, I loved exploring the range of my voice and applying the different colors to fit the characters I played. Finally, during high school, I joined the choir at my church, eventually becoming a worship leader, singing three services a week for nearly two years. That was my training.”

Samara’s first exposure to jazz was while attending Fordham High School for the Arts, where she performed regularly with the jazz band, eventually winning Best Vocalist at JALC’s Essentially Ellington competition. However, jazz wasn’t really her focus until the time came to choose a college. Wanting to attend a state school close to home, she picked SUNY Purchase, gaining acceptance into their acclaimed jazz program, with a faculty that includes many jazz masters (including Pasquale Grasso and drummer Kenny Washington, who both appear on her debut recording.)

“My friends were all into jazz and started sharing their favorite recordings with me to check out. The turning point was when I heard both Sarah Vaughan’s version of ‘Lover Man’ and Tadd Dameron’s recordings featuring trumpeter Fats Navarro. I was hooked.”

From this point, she began to pursue her jazz studies with an intense passion, eventually being named the Ella Fitzgerald Scholar and entering and winning the Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition.

Although having only recently celebrated her 21st birthday, Samara has already performed in many of the great jazz venues in NYC, including Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola, The Blue Note, and Mezzrow, in addition to working with jazz greats such as Christian McBride, Pasquale Grasso, Kirk Lightsey, Cyrus Chestnut, and NEA Jazz Master Dr. Barry Harris.

Samara's self-titled debut recording is slated for release on July 9 through Whirlwind Recordings. It presents her backed by the trio of guitarist Pasquale Grasso, bassist Ari Roland, and drummer Kenny Washington. Within the album's liner notes, veteran writer Will Friedwald comments that Samara Joy is “a fantastic collection of highly original new arrangements, beautifully sung by a rising talent, and a very impressive first album. People are forever using the word 'timeless' as if it were the greatest praise ever, but in a way, Samara’s voice and her music seem to belong to all time, like she’s connected to the entire history of jazz all at once - as if she were existing in every era simultaneously, she sounds both classic and contemporary.”

Winning the Vaughan award was transformational for Joy. “I was suddenly on the jazz radar. It’s still bizarre to think of how fast things have progressed.” Since then, Joy has dug deep to discover her jazz roots, without losing sight of the innate simplicity that makes her sound shine. Her first album announces the arrival of a young artist destined for greatness.
