Releasing her second album, at the young age of 22, Samara Joy signs with the iconic label Verve to release Linger Awhile. The title track, first recorded almost 100 years ago in 1923 by Bailey's Lucky Seven, stands out as the band (guitarist Pasquale Grasso, pianist Ben Paterson, bassist David Wong and drummer Kenny Washington) and Samara power through this upbeat tune at a breakneck pace. 


Samara’s surprisingly mature vocals shine on each track, from the cool lounge-jazz of standards like “Can’t Get Out Of This Mood”, “Nostalgia” and “Social Call”, to her ever so tender rendition of Monk’s “Round Midnight” or the particularly special “Someone to Watch Over Me”, originally by Gershwin. Samara Joy’s voice is full-bodied, rich and silky smooth as she caresses each standard with warmth and tenderness. She manages to update these timeless classics with a modern twist, sometimes singing original lyrics using the melodies of famous instrumental solos. An earnest and elegant album that introduces these foundational jazz standards to a younger audience whilst still pleasing the most serious jazz aficionados. © Jessica Porter-Langson / Qobuz

In your panoramas...
The Eternal John Coltrane

17th July 1967 marked the passing of the American saxophonist, at just 40 years old. The recordings he left behind have completely reshaped the history of his instrument, that of jazz and of 20th century music altogether.

Blue Note in 10 Albums

The most famous of all jazz labels had it all! Five-star artists, original repertoires, ingenious associate artistic directors, exceptional sound recording, sublime album covers, a variety of genres (Bebop, Hard Bop, Soul Jazz, Modal Jazz, Free Jazz)… The label was launched in 1939 by Francis Wolff and Alfred Lion, two Germans who had fled the Nazi regime, and had everything going for it. Qobuz has picked 10 key albums from its ample catalogue. Some of them are celebrated classics. Others are underrated marvels. But all of them played a vital role in shaping Blue Note as a label.

Bossa nova, the Eternal Wave

Since its creation in the late 1950s, Bossa-nova has become an indispensable part of Brazilian music. The style’s strong evocative power won over artists from all around the world and earned recognition for many first-rate musicians whose works are now seen as classics.
