Double ‘chai’ Fay Victor and Bandcamp

I paid 18$ to Fay Victor via bandcamp, on the prompting of Dave Douglas’ Greenleaf Music blast. It is the 18th project I have supported in this very convenient manner. I think it is three clicks, maybe four.
Meanwhile, I am making some progress with my bandcamp project, Lions With Wings.
There is some thought to abandoning the internet altogether and just make my seed money for Lions With Wings into grants for grants sake, in the hopes that someday we will be doing live shows again.

Note: Fay Victor appears with Dave Douglas and others in a project called Overcome that Mark Weiss, Earthwise Productions and Lions with Wings sponsored, but it is available thru Grandleaf Music bandcamp and not Lions with Wings bandcamp.

In Jewish liturgy and culture the number 18 is “chai” which means life.

So paying Fay eighteen dollars and hers being the eighteenth such transaction, I am saying is double chai. Meanwhile, and not to totally confused you I am drinking at home from my home office, sitting on a Rauschenberg inspired couch drinking or sipping Philz coffee from a mug I bought from Jan Schacter. I first heard about Fay, I believe, because she has a project with Marika Hughes who once played in my series or twice perhaps with Austin Willacy and Tin Hat. If it was Tin Hat it was the Starewich sequence at the Museum of American Heritage on Channing, circa 2000. I’m also remembering Victor Zenoff z’l who had a sister named Fay. There
