This trumpeter from the integrated Israeli city of Jaffa inflects jazz tradition with Arab and pan-African sensibilities. A veteran of the group Yemen Blues, Borochov has chops in rock, classical, and tonight’s mainstream jazz. His quartet includes pianist Michael King, bassist Avri Borochov, and drummer Jay Sawyer. (Supported by the Consulate General of Israel to the Pacific Northwest.)
Now based in New York City, Itamar Borochov came to the United States from the integrated Israeli city of Jaffa, known for its vibrant spice markets and long-standing cultural influence in the Middle East. Donning a Hamsa medallion around his neck, his music provides a soundscape for the meeting of East and West. Thoroughly entrenched in the jazz tradition, his dark tones blend Arab and pan-African sensibilities. He is one of the several prominent Israeli jazz artists setting the scene in New York and around Europe.
A veteran of the group Yemen Blues, Borochov also has chops in rock, classical, and tonight’s mainstream jazz. Borochov just released his new album Boomerang, written in Paris and on the beaches of Miami, this month.
His quartet includes pianist Michael King, bassist Avri Borochov, and drummer Jay Sawyer.
