Ohad Talmor

The cosmopolitan Ohad Talmor was born in Lyon, France, originally from Israel, grew up partly in Geneva, Switzerland and now American and long time Brooklyn resident. A classically trained pianist, Talmor picked up the saxophone while attending High School in Florida. Don’t let it confuse you. Talmor was mentored early on by the legendary Lee Konitz who helped him groom and foster his dual interests for Composition and Improvisation. Through Konitz’s close relationship, they worked on and co-lead three distinct projects for which Talmor both composed/arranged and played: the Lee Konitz Nonet, the Konitz-Talmor String Project and the Konitz-Talmor Big Band. On his own, Talmor leads a number of flexible groups mirroring his multi-faceted musical identity. The Newsreel Sextet featuring Drummer Dan Weiss, Pianist Jacob Sacks, Guitarist Miles Okazaki, Trumpeter Shane Endsley and Bassist Matt Pavolka. The Newsreel Trio featuring Guitarist Miles Okazaki and Drummer Dan Weiss. The Ohad Talmor Grand Ensemble – a big band featuring many of New York’s leading improvisers. The Mass Transformation Nonet focuses on the Music of Anton Bruckner and beyond

Ohad Talmor: Long Forms

Read "Long Forms" reviewed by Glenn Astarita


New York City-based tenor saxophonist, composer, arranger Ohad Talmor and associates provide all the 'jazz' news fit to hear on this superb effort, comprised of thorny time signatures, shifting detours and offbeat mini-grooves, enamored with the leader's whizzing solos and more goodness. Acclaimed due to his arrangements for the late sax great Lee Konitz and affiliations ...
