"Building a masterful solo as revenge, as fuel to the scheme of dreaming." - William Hooker

"It is too simplistic to categorize William Hooker as a fiery drummer who constantly explores structure and genre. As evidenced by the quote above from the spoken piece at the end of this recording, Hooker's playing is connected to an emotional world and the world at large. Bookended by two spoken word pieces, 'Ingratiated Beam - Leroy' and 'Yearn for Certainty', the title refers to the desire to know specifically and certainly how the world is to evolve forward. In between there is the down home banjo/sax of 'Century's Soles', the rainy bluster of 'Commonplace Travels', and the drum solo-clarinet solo-trio explosion of 'Magistrait.' Joined by multi-instrumentalists David Soldier (classical guitar, banjo, mandolin, and violin) and Sabir Mateen (saxophone, flute, and clarinet) the William Hooker Trio is both tender and thunderous on Yearn for Certainty."-Engine Records

"Sabir Mateen (born April 16, 1951) is a musician and composer from Philadelphia who plays primarily in the avant-garde jazz idiom. He plays tenor and alto saxophone, B♭ and alto clarinet, and flute.

As a young man, Mateen was originally a percussionist, and he started playing flute as a teenager. From there he moved to alto and then tenor saxophone. He started out playing rhythm and blues in the early 1970s which led him to the tenor saxophone chair of the Horace Tapscott Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra. He has performed or recorded with Cecil Taylor, Sunny Murray, William Parker, Alan Silva, Butch and Wilber Morris, Raphe Malik, Steve Swell, Roy Campbell, Jr., Matthew Shipp, Marc Edwards, Jemeel Moondoc, William Hooker, Henry Grimes, Rashid Bakr, Hamid Drake among others. He also is a member of the band TEST, with Daniel Carter."
