The brand new album from Acclaimed Jazz-Blues Guitarist Oz Noy and his new band Ozone Squeeze. Announcing Ozone Squeeze: Powerhouse blues / rock / jazz / funk guitarist Oz Noy joins forces with the talented Rai Thistlethwayte from Australia, the lead singer, keyboardist, and primary songwriter in the Australian pop rock band Thirsty Merc to form Ozone Squeeze.
Oz has been at the forefront of edgy-yet-rootsy guitar playing since he arrived in New York from Israel in the 1990’s. He has released four albums on the Abstract Logix label, and won Guitar Player magazine’s reader polls for “Best guitar riff on a record” (2007), “Best new talent” (2008), and “Best out there guitar player” (2013).
Rai Thistlethwayte started Thirsty Merc, a rock band which would release three successful albums (one platinum, one double-platinum in Australia). He has also performed in a number of jazz combos with the likes of Christian McBride and James Muller.
Darren Stanley has been in the music business performing, teaching and recording for the last 25 years. In recent years, he has worked with Col. Bruce Hampton, Delta Moon, and Donna the Buffalo.
Ozone Squeeze members are each trendsetters and masters of groove. This collaboration is shaping up to be quite special.
Ozone Squeeze is: Oz Noy (guitar), Rai Thistlethwayte (keys and vocals), and Darren Stanley (drums).
