Talking Ear And After Ours – Live
Two bands that both straddle genres come together for a night of jazz/rock bliss. The vibes will be cool and the best news is there’s NO COVER although a 5-10 donation is suggested. Talking Ear will be joining us on their tour supporting their new EP On Creating, while Indian’s After Ours will joining us on their area tour. Two tours collide!
“As a jazz quintet, Talking Ear blends original compositions with improvisation to musically converse with a growing Midwestern audience.” – The Stratton Setlist
Talking Ear is a progressive jazz ensemble based out of the Midwest committed to providing a unique experience for listeners through composition, collaboration, and improvisation. The group consists of vocalist Estar Cohen, guitarist Daniel Palmer, pianist Benjamin Maloney, bassist Ben Rolston, 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.
After Ours is a self-described “head-nod-jazz” duo from South Bend, IN comprised of Eli Kahn (7-string guitars & madness) & Arthur Schroeder (drumset) with a unique approach to improvisation & dynamic range.
Having worked together for 9+ years as the rhythm section in different groups, the two musicians have developed a tight chemistry that translates to their original music & interpretations of contemporary tunes.
