Talking Ear @ BOP STOP

Talking Ear is a Contemporary Jazz and New Music ensemble based out of Toledo, Ohio committed to providing a unique experience for listeners through composition, collaboration, and improvisation. The core of the group consists of vocalist Estar Cohen, guitarist Daniel Palmer, pianist Benjamin Maloney, and drummer Travis Aukerman. Each musician has a distinct voice as an accomplished composer and performer, contributing to an exciting and versatile, yet particularly cohesive sound. Members of the group have performed and studied with many acclaimed musicians including Jon Hendricks, The New York Voices, Claude Black, David Bixler, Tad Weed, Gunnar Mossblad, Jay Weik, Gilad Atzmon, and Tim Whalen, among others.

"The band takes a unique and academic approach to a rich combination of jazz and new music, combining a range of talent and experience in their young members, to create a sound original, exploratory, and all their own." -
