Sandy Cressman & Homenagem Brasileira at Zinc Bar
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.
Zinc Bar, 82 W 3rd St
