Only in her early 20’s, 2023 Grammy nominated singer Samara Joy has already made a name for her in the jazz world. She’s the 2019 winner of the Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition, and she’s since performed with legends like Christian McBride and Bill Charlap.

Tivon Pennicott is a much in-demand saxophone player, composer and multi-instrumentalis. He’s collaborated with the likes of Esperanza Spaulding and Gregory Porter.

Still in her late teens, Reno has been dazzling audience with her vocal maturity and presentation.  Nelson Brill of the Boston Concert Reviews says “her sophistication and work ethic set her apart from most people her age. Anaïs Reno is truly a classic vocalis, her singing is ageless.” She won Second Place at Michael Feinstein’s Great American Song Book Academy Competition, the youngest contestant ever!  And she’s already performed at Lincoln Center with the New York Philharmonic, Rose Hall, Birdland and NJPAC
