Sandy Cressman Homenagem Brasileira

Wednesday, February 21
7PM to 9PM

​ San Francisco-based vocalist Sandy Cressman made a name for herself as a true devotee of Brazil’s greatest contemporary composers, interpreting songs by post-bossa masters like Milton Nascimento, Hermeto Pascoal, Gilberto Gil, and Filó Machado in Rio-accented Portuguese. The friendships forged with Brazilian musicians during her musical travels course through her captivating new album Entre Amigos, which features a gorgeous array of new songs created with a far-flung cast of collaborators, including the celebrated Pernambuco frevo composer/bandleader Spok, rising Brazilian-American guitarist Ian Faquini, pianist/composer Jovino Santos Neto, and pianist Antonio Adolfo, a Brazilian jazz master who got his start at the center of Rio’s early 1960s bossa nova scene.

Cressman’s Zinc Bar show will feature a trio of New York Brazilian friends- Vitor Gonçalves on piano and accordion, Flavio Lira on bass, and Vanderlei Pereira on drums. The show will also feature daughter Natalie Cressman, a bandleader in her own right, as well as a member of guitarist Trey Anastasio’s band, on trombone and voice.

​ “…it is the radiant lyricism in the voice of Sandy Cressman, complete with the affective whisperings and exhilarating resonances that combine with the poetry of her music that make this recording quite unforgettable.” - Raul de Gama, World Music Report

“Sandy Cressman's Entre Amigos is a touchstone among modern recordings of what dedication, love, and even obsession for a certain genre can result in. A beautiful collection in every way.” - C. Michael Bailey, AllAboutJazz

“Vocalist Sandy Cressman takes you on a Brazilian tour of sounds in both English and Portuguese on this charming and lithe session…Lots of love on this sublime beauty.” - George W. Harris, Jazz Weekly
