Wednesday, September 5, 7:30, Rendon Hall at California Jazz Conservatory
Vocalist Sandy Cressman has made a name for herself interpreting post-bossa Brazilian songs. The friendships forged with Brazilian musicians inspire her recent album “Entre Amigos”, which features collaborations with composer/bandleader Spok, guitarist Ian Faquini, pianist/composers Jovino Santos, Neto and Antonio Adolfo. This show will feature Rio-born pianist Vitor Gonçalves, husband and trombonist Jeff Cressman, who is featured on “Entre Amigos” and toured for many years in Carlos Santana’s band; and daughter Natalie Cressman, a bandleader in her own right, on trombone and voice. Completing the rhythm section will be David Belove on bass and Dillon Vado on drums.
Special Guest Vitor Gonçalves
