Sandy Cressman celebates her love for Brazilian jazz on her new CD “Entre Amigos”. As founder and leader of the group Homenagem Brasileira, San Francisco-based vocalist/educator Sandy Cressman has had many opportunities over the last 20-plus years to forge creative partnerships with like-minded musicians from the Bay to Brazil.

 Though the new CD is her first new recording since 2005’s Brasil—Sempre no Coração,Cressman never stepped away from music. “For a long while I concentrated on mining the treasures in the existing Brazilian music repertoire,” says Cressman. “But at a certain point I started writing and asking people to collaborate, and Entre Amigos collects many of these amazing connections.”

Significantly, “Entre Amigos” opens a new chapter for Cressman as a tunesmith; she contributed lyrics, in both Portuguese and English, for every track on the album.
