Natalie Cressman & Ian Faquini
Apr 16, 2019
Trombonist and singer/songwriter Natalie Cressman and composer, guitarist, and singer Ian Faquini present their new duo project, drawing from impressionism, jazz, and the great Brazilian songwriting tradition to create a uniquely intimate collaboration.
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.
