Sandy Cressman & Homenagem Brasileira
Sandy Cressman & Homenagem Brasileira
Once in a while, an artist is born with an inexplicable connection to a culture far from the artist’s origins. Such is the case with Sandy Cressman. Born in New York City of American parents, but with a Brazilian heart, Cressman began her recording career with the highly acclaimed vocal trio Pastiche, with whom she recorded three CDs, "That’s R&Bebop" (Pony/Canyon/Nova) "Remember That" (BluePrint), and "Pastiche"(Summit).

Sandy’s connection with Brazilian music was first sparked when she first heard the music of Ivan Lins while in college as a vocal jazz major San Jose State University. Sandy began exploring other Brazilian jazz musicians and began to study Portuguese. From then on, her record collection filled with recordings of Lins and Djavan, Milton Nascimento, Dori Caymmi, Toninho Horta, Elis Regina, Gal Costa, Jobim and others.

The voice and guitar duo comprised of Susana Pineda and Luis Salcedo was formed in 2015 at the California Jazz Conservatory, in Berkeley. Pineda, who hails from Medellín, Colombia, and Salcedo, a Bay Area native, explore the frontiers of folk, rock, Latin groove, as well as the many vibrant colors of jazz.

On their debut, self-titled album, Opaluna, they present a fresh approach to contemporary jazz and Latin music, exploring every facet of their instruments while incorporating electronic techniques to create new textures and effects.
