February 2016…The Happenings!

IMG_20160117_072958

Friends!

Greetings from Brooklyn where the sun shone bright today under mild skies. For the moment, its quiet just long enough to get some work done including sending this update and greeting to you all. The year started with a bang – a daily occurrence of public loss…loss of great souls and personalities. That gave music a whole new meaning ,entering this year feeling like a warrior. It’s important more than ever to say something when you can. All we have are our voices, let whatever art we create be reflective of who we really are. It has to be this way for me and I’m blessed to do music I love, music that matters. Thanks to all that came out to the January performances… lots of good stuff is coming up so please read on.

2016-01-23 11.14.31

First up, I am more than honored to be asked to perform with the late vocalist Jimmy Scott Jazz Expressions in a tribute to his great legacy on SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 13th at Sista’s Place, in the heart of Bed Stuy here in Brooklyn.

Then later in the month I head to Europe and so excited to share the news of FINALLY recording Herbie Nichols SUNG with Achim Kaufmann on piano and Tobias Delius on tenor saxophone and clarinet.  WooHoo!  We’ll record over two live concerts – at the Bimhuis in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and De Loft in Koln, Germany. I’ll also teach a couple workshops – one at the Royal Conservatory in Antwerp (Belgium) and another in Amsterdam at Zaal 100. Will post flyers for the workshop and the concerts and please spread the word and share!

in other news:

Here’s a video of the New York Jazz Workshop Jazz Vocal Advanced Class performing my arrangement of Work Song by cornetist Nat Adderley with lyrics by Oscar Brown Jr. Shot during the bi-annual school presentation in December 2015, this was the final tune of this groups presentation. I’m so proud of these ladies that also knocked out there individual performances.

In January 2016, the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music Jazz Vocal Workshop gave their end of semester presentation to a packed house. It was one of my most expansive presentations to date where the vocalists sang individual selections, duets and a group song – also Work Song – but with a completely different arrangement. I wanted to do Work Song with both vocal groups because it’s powerful political sentiment is an important statement today on mass incarceration that I wanted to make and I wanted the students to get away from singing ‘pretty’ for a moment and sing something evocative of the sentiment in the blues that Nat Adderley wrote.

Here’s a pic of the group!

This just IN: I was the vocalist last year for Lisa Mezzacappa’s Glorious Ravage on the West Coast and here is a little video excerpt of the show…via this link: http://gloriousravage.com/watch/

What’s coming up in March? A lot.

Heading to DC (March 16) as a special guest with the Amy Bormet Quartet for the Washington Women in Jazz Festival. Heading up to Hampshire College as a guest of the great reedist Marty Ehrlich to perform with his students plus give a masterclass (March 22-23). Will be on a Women in Music Panel with two esteemed panelists in Dr. Courtney Bryan and Farrah Jasmine Griffith in the Bronx (March 12) and back in the 55 BAR with in Praise of Ornette to close out the Month.

Finally, I want to share with you all something very important to me that I started along with blogger, professor and curator Cisco Bradley called the TalkRACE Forum that got started in December 2014. The whole point of the forum is to create a space to have uncomfortable conversations about race across gender, ethnicity and class. Since that time the almost monthly meetings have revealed so much about the work there is to be done and how important these conversations seem to shed light on how we feel. I’m finally making it public as we’re beginning to give public TalkRACE Forums. We gave one at Pratt Institute in November 2015 and on February 2016 we’ll moderate another TalkRACE Forum at St. Joseph’s College in Brooklyn, NY. It’s a good time to let you all know that this is happening and anyone interested in know about these events, please feel free to reach out. Here is our budding FB page: https://www.facebook.com/talkraceforum/

Thanks for reading,

Happy New Year!

NewYear Posting Pic

Happy 2016! I wish you and all your loved ones the best wishes for this New Year!! May this year be your most enriching and fulfilling yet….

I start this year in a warrior spirit. Like I’m gearing up for battle on many fronts including my own creative quest for who I am and what I need to say. It’s been a couple years since I felt sure of my musical vision. I’m a restless creative spirit that has to pursue a variety of things but always with a main project that anchors everything else. A project I call home. For over 10 years that was the Fay Victor Ensemble, the vehicle for my writing, band-leading and improvisational playground (co-written with my husband and bass guitarist Jochem van Dijk). We’re still going strong – be on the lookout for FVE 2016 dates soon – yet I feel a pulling to perform music that isn’t written by me at all. For a couple years now I’m performing tunes from the Great American Songbook again finding new possibilities that I couldn’t even think of when I was starting out as a traditional jazz singer and my ears were more closed. An amazing rediscovery for me!

Jazz standards will show up on my 55BAR residency this month (THURSDAY, JANUARY 28, 2016) with Sam Newsome on soprano saxophone and Ken Filiano on double bass that I call the Quiet Side. My first gig of 2016 mines the jazz universe in a different way; the compositions of Ornette Coleman. Guitarist Anders Nilsson suggested we check out some Ornette Coleman tunes for our ExPosed Blues Duo project. I love Ornette’s music, already a fan and even learned a few themes by ear yet never considered singing them until Anders suggested it. We’ve done Ornette’s music as a duo a number of times over the past few years, last Spring we bought it to the 55BAR and invited bassist Sean Conly to join us. As luck would have it alto saxophone titan Darius Jones stopped by to hang for the gig and sat in. No doubt after hearing these rough forays that there wasn’t something there. A few months later the quartet, with Darius and Sean played on Craig Harris’ Series in Harlem after Ornette had left us in June 2015. Guitarist Kenny Wessel (and ex-Ornette Coleman sideman) replaced Anders, who was out of town, and what emerged that afternoon made my heart sing. That group, In Praise of Ornette… will appear on the Evolving Music Festival on WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 6, 2016 at Clemente Soto Velez.

There are beautiful Free Improv forays too this month in settings I’m proud to be a part of: on FRIDAY, JANUARY 15, I’ll join saxophonist/composer Matana Roberts residency at the Stone in the Lower East Side of NYC at 10pm, performing with her and more wonderful folk, then on WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 20, join me for another Green Avenue Music Presents at IBEAM with Tomas Fujiwara on drums, Ben Gerstein on trombone and a special guest Elisabeth Harnik on piano! SATURDAY, JANUARY 23 and SUNDAY, JANUARY 24, 2016 I’m playing in Chi-town!! on the 23rd at Constellation with the incredible multi-instrumentalist Tyshawn Sorey as we dig deeper into our duo dialogue and the following night I join drummer Mike Reed, bass clarinetist Jason Stein and Nick Butcher on electronics and guitar at the Hungry Brain for another fresh musical meeting. What a way to start the New Year. I hope to see you out at the shows and as always you can get all the performances details on the GIG section of the site…

Other super important things happening this month…SUNDAY, JANUARY 10, I’ll emcee an important event – a benefit to support the family of Tamir Rice, the 12 year old boy gunned down by police in Cleveland over a year ago. We want to assist Ms. Samaria Rice in getting the help she needs to fight the lack of indictment in this case. It will be a great event with musical performances and more…if you can’t be there, do what you can to donate to the cause and/or please spread the word.

On MONDAY, JANUARY 18, 2016, the Jazz Vocal Workshop will put on their end of semester performance! I’m very excited for this performance as these students have worked hard and risen to the occasion throughout the semester. This will be the most diverse presentation I’ve put on yet and I’m damn proud of this group. Sadly, it will be my last presentation as I am leaving the position at the end of semester. I had such a great two years at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music but the other news for 2016 is going back to school! So I’ll be focusing on that this year as well.

Ahhhh….a good feeling to start the year with a fighting spirit in a positive way. Life is painfully short. If no other year made that painfully clear, 2015 should be strong contender. No need to dilly-dally over the small stuff that gets in the way and distorts focus. We’ve got to fight the powers that be within and without.

Blessings!!

55 BAR on DECEMBER 31 CANCELLED

Dear friends…

due to a booking snafu mix-up misunderstanding…All Things with Strings will NOT appear at the 55BAR on December 31st for the Early Set. BUT the same fab group will be there with me on April 28, 2016. That’s Anders Nilsson (guitar), Marika Hughes (cello) and Sean Conly (double bass). Apologies and regrets for this change in plans. I’ll be back in the New Year at the 55Bar on January 28th, 2016 with Sam Newsome (soprano sax) and Ken Filiano (double bass), dipping into the Quiet Side.

Happy Holidays and I’ll be back soon with a fresh post before 2015 say goodbye.

Peace & Blessings,

Fay

Closing out the year – December 2015 News

Dear Friends,

It’s the beginning of December, Thanksgiving is just behind us and now we’ll go hurtling towards more holidays then the end of the year.  It’s unbelievable how fast it goes since it feels like just a few months ago that we left 2014!  Was 2015 good for you?

2015 felt (still feels) like a transformative year for me. I’ve come to some strong decisions which I’ll share more in the early months of 2016.  What I will share now is I’ve stepped back and taken some distance to this idea of ‘career’ that’s liberating.  Incredible too that it only enhances every musical experience I’ve gone into because the music is the main reason I’m there. I’ve always said that music is a great catalyst for honest expression.  I discovered that focusing on having a career made me less honest than I want to be. I didn’t want that anymore.  Yet even with putting that idea aside, I feel more on the move than ever.  Excited for 2016. Wishing you all a healthy, fun, creative, exciting, prosperous and musical New Year…and let this be the year where all your dreams come true.

On SUNDAY, December 6th, there a presentation of the Advanced Jazz Vocal Workshop of the New York Jazz Workshop at Club Bonafide! I’m excited for all the work the vocalists have done this Fall – looking forward to hearing them strut their stuff.

And I have one final gig for the year on the last day of the month (NEW YEARS EVE!) at the 55BAR, closing out the year with a trio of classy strings…doing a bunch of things.  This should be fun and I’d love to have you join us to ring out 2015, blessings, warts and all!

Friends!!

Happy November to you all! I’m hoping lots of good stuff is coming up for you as colder temps start approaching and looking forward to seeing some of you out and about. Some nice things coming up this month and I can’t wait to share…

If you’ve got folks in Baltimore, invite them to come out to the Caton Castle this coming Saturday Night (NOVEMBER 7, 2015) where I’ll be playing with some of the finest musicians on the East Coast as part of the Composers Collective featuring TK Blue of reeds, Lafayette Gilchrist on piano, Herman Burney on double bass and Eric Kennedy on drums. We’ll perform a mostly all original set of music! Check out the website here for details.

Then on SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 15, I’m honored and proud to be part of honoring the great trombonist Roswell Rudd turn 80 years old at Le Poisson Rouge featuring a great cast of musicians including Steven Bernstein, Lafayette Harris, Beau Soleil avec Michael Doucet and more. This will be a glorious celebration of an extraordinary musician. You’ve got to come on out!

On WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 18, I’m at Weeksville Heritage Center with Sean Conly and Sam Newsome, performing for the opening of the Lost Jazz Shrines exhibit. As someone that started my career as a vocalist in Brooklyn, how awesome is that!

**No 55BAR month because of Thanksgiving but back on Christmas Eve and that lineup will be announced soon!

In other news…wonderful new Video is up of a happening a concert in October with Sam Newsome and Reggie Nicholson…check it out:

Great press links to bassist/composer Lisa Mezzacappa’s Song Cycle Glorious Ravage that I performed on the West Coast at end of September and the beginning of October…here.herehere….!!

“Vocalist Fay Victor (from New York) rivaled the globe-girding tessitura of Yma Sumac…” – San Francisco Classical Voice

“The music rolled, roiled, staggered, even swung, with the phenomenal voice of Fay Victor delivering lyrics and sounds with an unusual combination of soul and abstraction”…metaljazz.com

“Fay Victor is a powerhouse with a clear, precise and cutting voice, and the dynamic and textural range of any master instrumentalist. Mezzacappa describes an instant chemistry with Victor, who can easily match Mezzacappa’s wide-ranging, groovy, and sometimes frenetic, turn-on-a-dime aesthetic.” – Roger Kim Music

Learn more about Glorious Ravage…. project here

**The Gin Fizz Lounge gig for FRIDAY, November 13th has been CANCELLED. We’re working on rescheduling that and I’ll post soon about a new date.

See you out there and Happy Thanksgiving if I don’t.  Sending lots of music and good wishes your way….

Thanks for reading and see you out there.

In the THICK of it…September 2015 News

Fay NEW
Come on September!

Yes…like it or not, we’re in the waning days of summer with the Fall season upon us. Here in NYC one of the things that means is that live shows go back inside. Funnily enough I have not done one outdoor show all summer. In fact, I can’t remember the last time I’ve played outside. Maybe in 2013 at the Hammer Museum in LA..that sounds about right…and the Red Hook Jazz Festival in 2013 was outdoors too.

Truthfully, I’ve been indoors a lot this summer. Made it to the beach for the first time just last week. Teaching and working on refocusing my energies and developing new projects. I write this at the end of a ‘staycation’, I took time to be home, stepping back from social media (except instagram), and people in general to regroup and reflect on what’s next and which way to go. And to get a few things DONE such as clean up the teaching page of my website. One thing I’m working on is expanding my teaching of jazz and improvisation around the world and a good clear page about that part of my life was long overdue. Take a look when you have a chance and please spread the word! (add weblink here) This month marks the return to running workshops at both the New York Jazz Workshop (just finished the annual 4-day Vocal Summit) and the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music + resuming my private teaching practice full force. Then next month, I’m honored and thrilled to head to Macedonia to teach two days of master classes alongside saxophonist Marc Mommaas at the University of Skopje. Learn more about that and more teaching coming up on the road on the updated teaching page.

the 2015 Jazz Vocal Summit (Intensive).  FOUR days of learning with these wonderful vocalists.  This session was sold out.

I’m also working on new music, mostly working on the beautiful song cycle Bay area bassist/composer Lisa Mezzacappa put together called Glorious Ravage! The song cycle alongside 4 independent films made in conduction with the music, will prier in Los Angeles on the Angel City Jazz Festival on SATURDAY, September 26, 2015 at RedCAT. the amazing 15 piece ensemble (including musicians such as Mark Dresser, Nicole Mitchell, Myra Melford, Vinny Golia and more…) heads to San Francisco to premiere Glorious Ravage on October 1st and 2nd. Lisa’s has a great website about it all – you can learn more at this link. I’m working on some of Ornette Coleman’s music, developing and working out a number of compositions to perform. Anders Nilsson and I started doing this a couple years ago, and now after a great and revelatory concert in August on the Harlem afternoon Jazz Series, playing Ornette’s music in quartet was inspiring to say the least. I want to keep this going.

Before I head back out West, I’ve got a couple shows here in NYC that I’m looking forward to! Coming up on the WhyNot Experiment Series at the WhyNot Jazz Club – I’m there doing a double bill with the marvelous Kyoko Kitamura! Kyoko’s pairing with the ever inventive dancer/choreographer Mark Lamb and later I get to pair up with guitarist Anders Nilsson (aka the ExPosed Blues DUO) for a foray into the experimental blues galaxy that exists waaaay out there. The ExPosed Blues DUO hasn’t played out in the city since the winter so we’re raring to go! What a fun night this will be…happening on SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2015. Then on SEPTEMBER 18, 2015, I’m back at the Gin Fizz Lounge, one of my favorite places to play in the city. A fun loving crowd comes out that enjoy the music! We opened up the live music on Fridays at this venue and glad to be back with my Blues and Standards Group. This month at the 55BAR, guitarist Anders Nilsson will be filling in my residency slot on THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 2015. I’ll be back at the 55BAR on THURSDAY, October 29 with Herbie Nichols SUNG.

Finally, I’ve got to say THANK YOU to a wonderful house and time at the 55BAR on August 27th with Sam Newsome on soprano saxophone and Ken Filiano on bass. Took it to the quiet and intricate side – it was beautiful, playing mostly standards in the soundscape with so many possibilities of time, space and sound available made this music so special. Another project to keep moving forth with. Playing tunes in this way is a joy! Thanks for reading. Get all the deets all on gigs that’s coming up on the GIG calendar.

Wishing you all the best for a fruitful and positive Autumn full of music, peace and love,

Fay

Just back from San Francisco, CA playing with bassist/composer Lisa Mezzacappa  at the De Young Museum in Golden Gate Park working out some the material for Glorious Ravage, a song cycle Lisa composed to accompany four films put together by Bay area film makers. premiering next month in Southern California before a two night run in San Francisco at the beginning of October! To learn more on that amazing project, check out Lisa’s website and even spread the word if you can.

Later this month, I run the Advanced Jazz Vocal Summit for the New York Jazz Workshop for the 6th year!  The Summit lasts four days and I’ve organized a nice gig at the Lexington Hotel, smack dab in midtown on FRIDAY, AUGUST 21st to feature the vocalists from this year’s session. Very happy to provide this opportunity to the students and I’ll perform a few tunes myself.  On TUESDAY, AUGUST 25th, I’m on the Harlem Jazz Series doing a program called In Praise of Ornette with Kenny Wessel (guitar), Sean Conly(double bass) and Darius Jones (alto saxophone). This is a great afternoon Jazz Series, curated by the fantastic trombonist Craig Harris. I’m so excited about this! Finally back at the 55BAR with the stupendous Sam Newsome on soprano saxophone and the ridiculous Ken Filiano on double bass on THURSDAY, AUGUST 27th for the Early Set.  That will be a thrilling ride for sure..

Finally a BIG thank you to all that came to the residency birthday hang at the 55BAR on July 30th..it was beyond expectation.  So much love and great spirits in that space!!! Thanks for being there with me in person and it spirit.  I felt it strong.  Here is a clip from the evening if you missed it.

More news in early September about the Fall and beyond…Happy Summer for now.

Hot Summer in the City – July/August 2015

Judson Church, this year's host of Vision Festival XX
Judson Church, this year’s host of Vision Festival XX

Hello friends,

Summer’s begun.  I’d bet most of you are on your way to doing great warm weather things.  A good thing too.  If you’re reading this from the North East USA then you know all too well how horrible this past winter was.  And loooong. That’s all behind us now.  This summer finds me just slightly less busy then the rest of the year, which is a first.  My teaching practice – now booming  – isn’t letting up! Later this month, my dearest and I will celebrate 18 years of married life and love, the week after that – I turn 50!!  I can’t believe it myself.

One of the ways of celebrating that milestone takes place on THURSDAY, JULY 30 at the 55BAR! My residency enters its third year there and every anniversary I celebrate by inviting great friends and idols to join me a for a musical smorgasbord for a couple of hours.  It’s always a great hang, it’s free and having you there make the celebration all the better.  This year the special guests are: Anders Nilsson, Ras Moshe, Ken Filiano, Michael Attias, Mazz Swift, Reggie Nicholson, Cooper Moore and William Parker!

karl berger full house

Speaking of William Parker, just a couple days ago a joined a small chorus for his piece at the Vision Festival XX that was a blast. And as I write today – SUNDAY, JULY 12th – I’ll be at Barbes with the wonderful musician and singer Jeremiah Lockwood going deep into the blues at 5PM.

Early in August (FRIDAY, AUGUST 7th), I head out to the West Coast, playing with Lisa Mezzacappa  at the de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park working out some the material for Glorious Ravage – being more formally presented in September/October.  To learn more on that amazing project, check out Lisa’s website and even spread the word if you can.  Later in August, I run the Advanced Jazz Vocal Summit for the New York Jazz Workshop.  The Summit lasts 4 days and I’ve organized a nice gig at the Lexington Hotel, smack dab in midtown on FRIDAY, AUGUST 21st to feature the vocalists from this year’s session. Very happy to provide this opportunity to the students.  On TUESDAY, AUGUST 25th, I’m on the Harlem Jazz Series doing a program called In Praise of Ornette with Kenny Wessel, Sean Conly and Darius Jones. This is a great afternoon Jazz Series, curated by the great trombonist Craig Harris. I’m so excited about this! Back at the 55BAR  on THURSDAY, AUGUST 27th for the Early Set and the line-up soon come. Details on all the shows mentioned are in the GIG section of the site.

Just released!
Just released!

In other great, great news – I’m honored to be a part of a newly released book, entitled “Giving Birth to Sound: Creative Women in Music”, edited by William Parker and Renate De Rin and published by buddy’s knife.  I got my copy a couple nights ago and I’m inspired by all the thoughts these powerful and creative women have on the process of making music. How music impacts our lives.  Pick up a copy and learn more here.

I’ll be back with a proper post come September so until then – have a great summer!! Thanks for reading and maybe, just maybe – I’ll see you out there.

Love, not war. and music.
