Jazz vocalist Samara Joy sold out a show at Town Hall Great Hall on March 17, 2023. Joy had performed at Seattle’s Earshot Jazz Festival with pianist Sullivan Fortner in 2021. Accompanying her this time was a seven-piece band of rhythm and horns. The audience offered an enthusiastic reception, including a mid-set standing ovation.
