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 Trio: Mise En Place

Read "Mise En Place" reviewed by Mark Corroto


The cry was heard, “nobody said there was going to be math involved!" Sorry kids, the music heard on saxophonist Ohad Talmor's Mise En Place is in fact related to the abstract science of number, quantity, and space, and this is an upper level course on the intricate.
