Formed in 2018, Ocelot is a Brooklyn based Avant-Jazz collective trio consisting of Yuma Uesaka (Saxophone/Clarinets), Cat Toren (Piano/Keyboard) and Colin Hinton (Drums/Percussion).
As all members of Ocelot are prolific composers and improvisers, the group’s repertoire is varied and dynamic. Ocelot hones their sound with rhythmic propulsion, long lyrical melodies, soft textures, and aggressive free jazz, exploring each sound-world to its nethermost depths and transformations. The group has a synergy that brings out the confidence and trust necessary for deep musical exploration while showcasing full command of their individual instruments. Ocelot exemplifies the emergent wave of musicians that work within the intersections of many musical idioms including jazz, contemporary western classical, and noise music.

William Hooker - Remembrance

Mara Rosenbloom Piano
Adam Lane Bass
William Hooker Drums

"William Hooker's body of uninterrupted work beginning in the mid-seventies defines him as one of the most important composers and players in jazz. As bandleader, Hooker has fielded ensembles in an incredibly diverse array of configurations. Each collaboration has brought a serious investigation of his compositional agenda and the science of the modern drum kit.His work is frequently grounded in a narrative context. Whether set against a silent film or anchored by a poetic theme, Hooker brings dramatic tension and human warmth to avant-garde jazz.His ability to find fertile ground for moving music in a variety of settings that obliterate genre distinctions offers a much-needed statement of social optimism in the arts." Thomas Stanley.
