O’s Notes: Natalie Cressman plays trombone, sings and leads a fine ensemble through a program of nine mostly original tunes on her debut Unfolding. The brass harmonies are excellent on top of a swinging rhythm section. Natalie shines with her horn and syncopated melodies. Her voice is rich with warm tones whether she is singing lyrics or vocalese. Of note are “Honeysuckle Rose”, “Echo”, “Goodbye Pork Pie Hat” and “Flip”. There is much more to come from this promising 20-year-old wonder and we are anxiously waiting!
