Samara Joy won her first two Grammy Awards on Sunday, including best new artist.

Joy picked up her first Grammy when her album Linger Awhile won best jazz vocal album, not long after the vocalist delivered a rousing performance at the Grammys premiere ceremony in Los Angeles on Sunday. She then won best new artist at the Grammys’ main event later that evening.

Terri Lyne Carrington, Arturo O’Farrill, Wayne Shorter and Snarky Puppy were some of the other winners of the 65th annual Grammy Awards.

This year’s winners of the Grammys’ jazz categories turned out to be a mix of new and familiar names. Wayne Shorter and Leo Genovese shared the award for best improvised jazz solo for “Endangered Species.” Terri Lyne Carrington’s New Standards, Vol. 1 took the award for best instrumental jazz album. Arturo O’Farrill & The Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra won best Latin jazz album for Fandango at the Wall in New York. 

Steven Feifke, Bijon Watson and the Generation Gap Jazz Orchestra’s self-titled release won the title of best large jazz ensemble album. The album was released by Vancouver-based Cellar Music Group, marking a rare Grammy victory for a Canadian jazz record label.

Snarky Puppy continued their dominance at the Grammys, with their latest album Empire Central winning best contemporary instrumental album.

Also that evening, Geoffrey Keezer helped kick things off by winning the award for best instrumental composition for his tune “Refuge.” That was followed by John Beasley winning a Grammy for best arrangement for “Scrapple From the Apple,” recorded with Magnus Lindgren, the SWR Big Band and Martin Auer. Vince Mendoza then won for his arrangement of Christine McVie’s “Songbird.”

Best traditional pop vocal album went to Michael Bublé’s Higher.
