The group, which Time Out New York calls “a unique mixture of impressionistic spoken word and gritty jazz fusion,” will be previewing music from its forthcoming September release, The FreeSong Suite (Greene Avenue Music).
“Taking jazz singing forward with a unique form of expression,” declares Cadence reviewer Jim Santella, “Fay Victor delivers with authority. She reaches out with open arms to celebrate the freedom that comes with singing what you feel.”
Jazzwise reviewer Selwyn Harris agrees, writing, “This New York-based vocalist actually stretches the definition of jazz vocals with Betty Carter, Hendrix and Sun Ra’s song-based cosmic poetry all in the mix.”
The Fay Victor Ensemble features guitarist Anders Nilsson, bassist Ken Filiano and drummer Michael T.A. Thompson.
