Natalie Cressman & Ian Faquini perform at the 1905

Two Shows - 7:30p and 9:30p

  • Natalie Cressman, Vocals & Trombone
  • Ian Faquini, Guitar

Trombonist and singer/songwriter Natalie Cressman and Brazilian composer, guitarist, and singer Ian Faquini have created a uniquely intimate duo collaboration, drawing from impressionism, jazz, and the great Brazilian songwriting tradition. The duo’s global take on music is largely expressed through the distinct compositional voice of Faquini, with occasional lyrics penned by Cressman. Their original material features songs in three different languages and encompasses a vast spectrum of musical ground. With the warm instrumentation of acoustic guitar and trombone and two-part vocal harmonies hugging the Brazilian-accented Portuguese, Cressman & Faquini weave their musical voices together to create a fully orchestrated sound befitting a much larger ensemble. Together Cressman and Faquini performed in the US at venues including the Monterey Jazz Festival, SFJAZZ Center, and and in Brazil, Portugal, Spain, and Italy.
