“There are definitely no rules, set parameters – or formula at all,” explains Ozone Squeeze keyboardist and vocalist Rai Thistlethwayte. “It's always been an intuitive conversation.” Consisting of Rai Thistlethwayte, New York based guitar virtuoso Oz Noy, and deep-grooving drummer Darren Stanley who spent last few years with recently departed iconic Col. Bruce Hampton, Ozone Squeeze present a boldly personal vision of soul, funk, and R&B music on their self-titled debut album, to be released by Abstract Logix on September 15. Bridging the emotional resonance of classic song forms with a sonic fluidity and exploratory impulse drawn from jazz and the outer limits of improvised music, Ozone Squeeze is a compelling snapshot of a new band reveling in the moment – at once loose and tight, audibly enthralled with the wide-ranging potential of their collective dynamic.
