    Once in a while, an artist is born with an inexplicable connection to a culture far from the artist’s origins. Such is the case with Sandy Cressman. Born in New York City of American parents, but with a Brazilian heart, Cressman began her recording career with the highly acclaimed vocal trio Pastiche, with whom she recorded three CDs, "That’s R&Bebop" (Pony/Canyon/Nova) "Remember That" (BluePrint), and "Pastiche"(Summit).

    Sandy Cressman and Homenagem Brasileira have performed at important West Coast Jazz Festivals such as the Monterey Jazz Festival and the San Jose Jazz Festival, as well as featured performances for radio stations KXJZ(Sacramento) and KCSM(San Francisco).
