Natalie Cressman – Translating The Musical Language

NSR_Natalie_16X9

We are so excited to have Natalie Cressman as our guest on No Simple Road this week as part of our lead up to Skull & Roses Festival!

 

Possessing a voice as cool and crystalline as an Alpine stream, Natalie Cressman is a rising singer/songwriter and trombonist who draws inspiration from a vast array of deep and powerful musical currents.  Currently splitting her time between New York City and the Bay Area, Cressman has become an accomplished trombonist and vocalist, performing in Broadway pit orchestras, recording a variety of solo projects, and building a following in the diverse realms of jazz, funk, and jam, including 12 years touring the jam band circuit as a horn player and vocalist with Phish’s Trey Anastasio.

 

We jump right into it with Natalie talking about:

  • Playing with Phil Lesh and Friends for the first time.
  • Learning a new musical language in The Grateful Dead songbook.
  • What she thinks about the whole ‘scene’ attached to Phish and The Grateful Dead worlds.
  • How if feels to have played iconic shows like The Beacon Jams’.
  • What her experience was like playing the recent ‘Taboose’ shows.
  • What she thinks about all this talk regarding “torch passing”.
  • What drew to to develop a love of music.
  • The experience of playing and writing music with her husband Ian.
  • The ways in which the last few years affected her both personally and musically.
  • An insiders view on the relationship between the TAB horn players.
  • How and why she decided to learn and become fluent in Portuguese.

… and a whole lot more!
