Some comments on Fay Victor's latest recording, CARTWHEELS THROUGH THE COSMOS(ArtistShare):
Victor is the traffic director of a group methodology that surges into the interstellar regions of sound." --Glenn Astarita, New & Noteworthy Column, March 2007, AAJ.com
Complex, ambitious record" (A-) --Tom Hull, Village Voice
CARTWHEELS THROUGH THE COSMOS is that rarity amongst contemporary vocal jazz releases:an album that doesn't rely on a tired repertoire and looks, instead, for innovation in every corner...Her fearless exploration of a myriad of musical nexus points makes CARTWHEELS THROUGH THE COSMOS an album for those who normally stay away from vocal jazz." --John Kelman, AAJ.com
It's a borderless, cacophonous, in-your-face experiment in tone poetry and free-form expression. It's tough. It's gutsy. It's brilliant." --Christopher Loudon, JazzTimes
