Two rising jazz stars make their Annenberg Center debut. Samara Joy won the prestigious Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition in 2019, and now at only age 21, she’s already a veteran performer at famed New York jazz clubs with a much-anticipated debut album due by mid-2021. Samara Joy will reunite on stage with Pasquale Grasso, an award-winning guitarist whose astounding technique and “practically faultless” (DownBeat) playing has garnered high praise from jazz great Pat Metheny. With astonishing talent that belies their youth, this duo will perform a mix of originals and American Songbook classics, offering a glimpse at the future of jazz.
