“With a Brazilian heart,” but born in New York, Sandy Cressman began her recording career with the highly acclaimed vocal trio Pastiche—releasing three albums: That’s R&B-bop, Remember That, and Pastiche.
Sandy’s connection with Brazilian music started while in college, studying vocal Jazz and Portuguese. She filled her record collection with the likes of Lins and Djavan, Milton Nascimento, Dori Caymmi, Toninho Horta, Jobim, and other genre greats. In 1996, she began performing as a duo with Marco Silva, Brazilian master keyboardist and former musical director-arranger for Flora Purim and Airto Moreira. In 1999, Silva and Sandy released Homenagem Brasileira, their critically acclaimed tribute to the great composers and performers of Brazilian Jazz.
