“The whole thing is as if Joni Mitchell wrote lyrics for a lost Betty Carter prog-rock album — and it totally works.”
—NPR Jazz on the Fay Victor Ensemble’s The FreeSong Suite

This telepathically attuned trio, fronted by the indomitable vocalist and composer Fay Victor, combines jazz, rock, and free improvisation into intense, always daring acts of corporeal musical expression. Backed by Anders Nilsson on guitar and Ken Filiano on bass, Victor is a fearless risk-taker, singing, moaning, and scatting her way to a complete redefinition of what jazz singing can be.
