Event description
Homenagem Brasileira (“Homage to Brazil”) embraces the diversity of Brazil’s musical traditions rather than simply focusing on Brazilian standards that have already crossed over into the jazz world. Sandy Cressman’s newest project, Entre Amigos, includes collaborations with various Brazilian and Brazilophile musicians, and was recorded in the U.S., Brazil, and Europe. Beautifully conceived, arranged, and performed, Brazilian guitarist/composer Chico Pinheiro describes Entre Amigos as “a delicate and sensitive declaration of love for Brazil, for [jazz], but above all an ode to friendship and to all the bridges that only music can build.”

About the Artist
Sandy Cressman is a San Francisco-based jazz vocalist who began her career recording and performing with the vocal jazz group Pastiche before focusing on her passion for Brazilian jazz. This passion led her to form the group Homenagem Brasileira in 1998. She has toured the U.S., Europe, and Brazil, and has released three critically acclaimed albums including Homenagem Brasileira, Brasil-Sempre no Coração, and Entre Amigos. Released in February 2017, Entre Amigos features all original music that Cressman composed with contemporary Brazilian composers, such as Santos Neto, Antonio Adolfo, Ian Faquini, and more. Cressman has lent her vocals to recordings by such diverse artists as Ray Obiedo (Windham Hill), Pete Escovedo (Concord Crossover), and Eddie Money (CBS). Her love of languages and global music has led her to become a much-in-demand session vocalist for artists across the world.
