Acclaimed avant-jazz vocalist Fay Victor heads a trio with guitarist Joe Morris and percussionist Reggie Nicholson. The Brooklyn-based Victor is an improvising vocalist, composer, lyricist and educator riding all the chasms and seams of musics that are improvisational and conversational in nature. In Victor's nine critically acclaimed albums as a leader include her most recent release, Wet Robots (ESP Disk, July 2018), which tied with vocalist Kurt Elling for the #4 sloton NPR's Annual Jazz Critics Poll for 2018. Her work has been featured in such media such as the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, Rolling Stone magazine, TimeOut New York and The Huffington Post. She has worked with such luminaries as William Parker, Roswell Rudd, Nicole Mitchell, Archie Shepp, Marc Ribot and Tyshawn Sorey, and has performed at venues including the Museum of Modern Art (NYC), The Hammer Museum (LA), The Kolner Philharmonie (Germany), De Young Museum (SF), Symphony Space (NY), The Earshot Jazz Festival, The Winter Jazz Festival and the Bimhuis (Netherlands).
