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).

Educated at U.C. Berkeley , Sandy has performed with Brazilian master keyboardist Marcos Silva, former musical director and arranger for Flora Purim and Airto, who has also worked with Toninho Horta, Dori Caymmi and other Brazilian greats.. Sandy and Marcos Silva developed an extensive following in the San Francisco Bay Area. In1999, they released “Homenagem Brasileira”, their critically acclaimed tribute to the great composers and performers of Brazilian Jazz. Sandy released her second CD of Brazilian music in 2005, entitled "Brasil-Sempre no Coração". She has performed this repertoire around the U.S. as well as in France, Austria, Switzerland and Germany. Sandy's music can be heard on her website Cressman Music
