“Her trombone is world-class, but her singing voice is another thing entirely, an empathic entity that channels the ages. Cressman's is a flawless act that can only get better with time and age. Yep, I smell a Grammy — someday.” — Dave Good, San Diego Reader
“Faquini is an uncannily masterful composer” - Paul de Barros, Seattle Times
Trombonist and singer/songwriter Natalie Cressman and composer, guitarist, and singer Ian Faquini have created a uniquely intimate duo collaboration, drawing from impressionism, jazz, and the great Brazilian songwriting tradition. Their original material features songs in three different languages and encompasses a vast spectrum of musical ground. With the warm instrumentation of acoustic guitar and trombone and two-part vocal harmonies hugging the Brazilian-accented Portuguese, Cressman & Faquini weave their musical voices together to create a fully orchestrated sound befitting a much larger ensemble. Together Cressman and Faquini have played their music across the US in venues ranging from intimate house concerts to performing arts halls and jazz festival stages such as the Monterey Jazz Festival, and have performed internationally in Brazil, Japan, Portugal, Spain, and Italy.
Local guitarist and songwriter Frank Calzada & Friends will provide local support!
