Let’s add some jazz to the season

A now-deceased college fraternity brother of mine posted this clip on Facebook earlier in 2015 and I liked it. It’s by a group called Pastiche, friends of Andy’s from his San Francisco days as a DJ. They’ve put out three CDs and worked as backup vocalists for many recording sessions. I’m hearing a little Manhattan Transfer or maybe The Andrews Sisters here.

Apparently in the seven years since they’ve broken up. One of them, Sandy Cressman, has made a new career of interpreting Brazilian jazz in San Francisco.
