Sandy Cressman's Homenagem Brasileira (Homage to Brazil) embraces the diversity of Brazil's musical traditions, playing the full spectrum of Brazilian jazz from Rio-based bossa nova and samba to baião and frevo from Brazil’s northeast. Her most recent album, Entre Amigos, which features collaborations with Jovino Santos Neto, Ian Faquini, Antonio Adolfo, Spok, and other contemporary composers. According to Brazilian guitarist/composer Chico Pinheiro, Beautifully conceived, arranged and performed, Entre Amigos is a delicate and sensitive declaration of love for Brazil, for Jazz, but above all an ode to friendship and to all the bridges that only music can build."
