Length of set is 75 minutes
This will be a special night at OTP, we are looking forward to hosting Natalie and Ian as they will exemplify their sound of world jazz. The duo boasts powerful and harmonizing vocals layered in with the smooth sounds from Natalie’s trombone and Ian’s acoustic guitar. We will hear songs sung in three different languages, the dynamic and sounds of this project far exceed only two people on stage, we encourage you to not miss this evening.
We will be requesting our guests of the evening to be respectful of the artists and listen while they are playing. This is a new attempt for OTP and we believe will make for a special evening, only 90 tickets will be sold so everyone is able to have a seat in comfort. Seating will be first come, first-served. We kindly request that gaps are not left in the seating arrangement so all seats are filled.
A little about Natalie and Ian:
Natalie Cressman is an accomplished jazz trombonist, she studied at the Manhattan School of Music and a few years ago has joined forces with the mighty Trey Anastasio Band, backing up vocals and showcasing her trombone along with trumpeter Jennifer Hartswick. Her abilities cover the spectrum from jazz to rock to funk and to soul, exploring all things around and in between.
Ian Faquini is a critically acclaimed Brazilian guitarist, graduate of Berklee School of Music and out-of-this-world talent. Writer Andy Gilbert in SF Classical Voice, “Faquini writes astonishingly sophisticated Brazilian pop music in the omnivorous tradition known as MPB (música popular brasileira), which often draws heavily on jazz. Born in Brasília and raised in Berkeley, Faquini is a protégé of Guinga, the revered Brazilian guitarist and songwriter whose tunes have been recorded by dozens of MPB stars…While his harmonic palette is unmistakably inspired by Guinga’s writing, Faquini often draws on styles from Brazil’s northeast.”
We are in for a mighty treat of epic proportion!
