Thursday Night Live

Enjoy music by an acclaimed visiting jazz group plus an improvised collaboration with members of the Coast Jazz Orchestra and the Dartmouth Symphony Orchestra  (a warm-up for their joint concerts Feb. 21 and 22!). SoundNoiseFUNK3 is avant-jazz vocalist Fay Victor, 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). Victor was the 2017 Herb Albert/Yaddo Fellow in Music Composition. Current releases include Nicole Mitchell's Maroon Cloud (FPE Records, August 2018) and Marc Ribot's Songs of Resistance (September 2018), featuring Victor as well as guests vocalists Tom Waits, Steve Earle and Meshell Ndegeocello.

Victor is currently on the faculty at the New School of Jazz and Contemporary Music and runs a private teaching practice that includes courses on creative improvisation, songwriting for improvisors and private lessons for the serious vocal student and improvisor.
