Album Notes
What the critics had to say about lazy Old Sun:
"A boldly inventive Betty Carter-Billie Holiday hybrid...the tremendously versatile Victor takes off into all sorts of curiously exciting directions...a real find, a true original.
-Christopher Loudon, JazzTimes, March 2005
"Unlike so many vocal CD’s on the market, this is a true collaboration. That speaks volumes about Victor’s maturity and confidence, trusting and then delivering on the idea that she can hang with such a solid cast of improvisers(...)Lazy Old Sun has been in heavy rotation since it arrived(...)It accounts both for the wide technical toolkit she employs (...)and for why this music hits such a poignant spot within the listener. "
-Charles Walker, Sudden Thoughts.
"Sounds like a young Betty Carter with a bad case of wanderlust...a live set strong enough to win over all but the most anti-vocal jazz-fans... "
-Kurt Gottschalk, Signal to Noise, Spring 2005
"Fay Victor is a gifted musician, possessed of flawless intonation, musical imagination, and inventive phrasing ... this album deserves a first, a second, and a third listening."
-William Grim, All about Jazz
"Lazy Old Sun puts a fresh new twist on jazz singing...her rich alto and perfect pitch allow the quartet to play with the fringes of dissonance...it keeps hope alive that something fresh may still be coming for jazz singing"
-Phillip McNally, Cadence magazine, March 2005
"Fay Victor(...)returns with an equally, if not superior effort in Lazy Old Sun...This is music of pure invention and craftsmanship"
-C. Michael Bailey, All about jazz
"Fay Victor is clearly a singer who holds abstraction and soulfulness in equally high regard...Victor finds the jazz vocal possibilities in everything"
-Alex Henderson, All Music Guide , january 2005
"A highly developed & strong musical concept, sounds fresh and inspiring....so few singers take the risk to have their own sound, like you do"
-Mark Murphy, vocal jazz legend

She rocks...big time!
I loved this record! The choice of material is happening and the range of expression in her voice is amazing and the band is right there with her, every step of the way. If you want something new, fresh and hip... Get it!

Cynthia Hilts

loved it - Jeanne Lee meets Jimi
Space, breadth, tone colors, cool lyrics, groaning and shaking and sweet husky breathing. Woohoo!

Harold, NYC

Like a Betty Carter who does far-out material
I love the CD. She can really sing and improvise, and is part of the band like another musician, without being a showoff. The Randy Newman and Curtis Mayfield pieces rock your socks off. I've seen her perform around NYC and she has a wonderful warm rapport with the audience. A really different voice in jazz.
