A sublimely talented young trombonist and vocalist versed in jazz, Brazilian music and the Afro-Cuban tradition, Bay Area-born Natalie Cressman returns in duo with Brazilian guitarist and singer Ian Faquini with music from their 2019 album, Setting Rays of Summer, and new songs from their upcoming release.

Cressman’s musical pedigree is impeccable, growing up as the daughter of vocalist Sandy Cressman and Santana trombonist Jeff Cressman, gaining much-deserved notoriety as a member of Phish leader Trey Anastasio’s ongoing solo project, and working with Nicholas Payton and Wycliffe Gordon.

A virtuosic instrumentalist and gifted singer who now calls New York home, she’s a former member of the SFJAZZ High School All-Stars who has made good on her prodigious beginnings, working with a diverse range of artists including salsa icon Pete Escovedo’s Latin Jazz Orchestra, world music giant Jai Uttal and the Pagan Love Orchestra, and iconoclastic multi-instrumentalist Peter Apfelbaum.

Cressman and Faquini’s current full-length album, Setting Rays of Summer, is a diverse 10-track session featuring sensuous material sung in Portuguese, English, and French.

Her trombone is world-class, but her singing voice is another thing entirely, an empathic entity that channels the ages.
