About the event
With singer Samara Joy on Rudder Theatre stage:
Ben Paterson - piano
Ari Roland - bass
Keith Balla - drums
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, Samara has dug deep to discover her jazz roots, without losing sight of the innate simplicity that makes her sound shine.
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.
