Overview

Anyone capable of turning a both a Stooges song about shooting smack and a Kinks ode to the sun into free-jazz finery is worth a listener's time. Fay Victor hasn't issued a bunch of music as a leader, and when she has, it's largely been through her own Greene Avenue Music imprint. So, the New York vocalist hooking up with ESP-Disk for Wet Robots is a notable move. Her troupe here, augmented by guitarist Joe Morris, rumbles through aggressively artful free maneuvers, occasionally touching on minimal passages, as on "Whistling on a Skateboard," when Victor summons guttural harmonies in tandem with Sam Newsome's soprano saxophone. - DownBeat Magazine Editors' Pick
