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.
