Samara Joy Linger Awhile Longer
When "Linger Awhile" was released in September 2022, the international press was thrilled and in February 2023 Samara Joy then struck twice at the 65th Grammy Awards: she not only received the trophy for the best jazz vocal album of the year with "Linger Awhile", but also surprisingly collected the cross-genre award for "Best New Artist". On May 19, 2023, "Linger Awhile" will be released as a deluxe edition on CD and digitally.
The eight additional recordings - including four album tracks sung in new duo or trio versions with, among others, pianist Gerald Clayton, and four additional tracks - will also be available from June 16, 2023 in an exclusive LP version called "Linger Awhile Longer" only from us.
