Brooklyn-based trio Ocelot interweaves the patience of contemporary classical and the restless spirit of free jazz with an attention to deep listening that verges on sound sculpture. Formed in 2018, their “jazz adjacent” 2021 debut album balances insistent, cerebral minimalism with earthy melodicism, fiery nods to post-bop, and a sublime commitment to the moment honed by years of engaged improvisation.


Music inspired and coming from the tradition of jazz, improvised music, creative music, and western classical music. Some composers that we love are Anthony Braxton, Morton Feldman, Tyshawn Sorey, Kris Davis, Ingrid Laubrock, just to name a few!
