Natalie Cressman & Ian Faquini

Friday April 5th at 7:30pm: Brazilian Jazz Fusion with Natalie Cressman and Ian Faquini at The Drake.

Trey Anastasio Band trombonist and singer/songwriter Natalie Cressman and Brazilian composer, guitarist, and singer Ian Faquini have created a uniquely intimate collaboration, drawing from impressionism, jazz, and the great Brazilian songwriting tradition. Their original material features songs in three different languages, with the warm instrumentation of acoustic guitar and trombone and two-part vocal harmonies hugging the Brazilian-accented Portuguese.

They have performed at Monterey Jazz Festival, SFJAZZ Center, and and in Brazil, Portugal, Spain, and Italy.
