The Fay Victor Ensemble will appear at Location/One Roulette as part of the Avant Jazz: Still Moving Festival on Saturday, April 28, 2007.

Fay Victor - voice
Anders Nilsson - electric guitar

The Fay Victor Ensemble is a voice-guitar-bass-drum unit performing original material that mostly provides structure for free improvisational flight; each member contributing equally to proceedings. The band's first recording, Cartwheels Through the Cosmos, was released in January 2007 on the ArtistShare label. It is an ambitious and adventurous project that oversteps and redefines the boundaries of what a jazz-singer is. It combines the thoughtfulness of observant lyric-writing, the excitement of improvising, and the structure of solid composing, captivating the listener with cinematic, story-driven pieces.

“It's a borderless, cacophonous, in-your-face experiment of tone poetry and free-form expression. It's tough. It's gutsy. It's brilliant." -Christopher Loudon, JazzTimes

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
