A MUSICAL TRIPLE THREAT – Natalie Cressman has music in her genes. The jazz trombonist-vocalist-composer is the daughter of Santana trombonist Jeff Cressman and jazz vocalist Sandy Cressman. All that music growing up imbued the younger Cressman with exceptional talent, which is on full display on her just-released debut album, Unfolding. Cressman and her band Secret Garden will perform Friday Aug. 10 at 8 pm at Freight & Salvage. The evening also includes a performance show by Peter Apfelbaum, a Berkeley-bred musician, composer, who has played with many of the greats. He will be joined by drummer Josh Jones. Tickets are $22.50.
