Itamar Borochov Quartet
Trumpeter from Brooklyn brings traditions from Arabic to Sephardic music from his native Israel.
Trumpeter Itamar Borochov belongs to the new generation of Israeli jazz musicians in New York. He grew up in Jaffa, a melting pot of Jewish, Arab and Christian cultures. His musical influences are equally diverse, from Edith Piaf to Weather Report and Prince to Nusrat Fatah Ali Khan. That he gets a lot of inspiration from vocalists can be heard in the warm and lyrical trumpet playing. The new album Arba will be released this fall.
The basis remains the music from his youth, the music from the synagogue. Just as John Coltrane and Lee Morgan once returned to gospel from jazz, Itamar Borochov feels drawn to the ancient Sephardic spiritual tradition. The trumpeter received the prestigious LetterOne Rising Stars Jazz Award from DeeDee Bridgewater a few years ago.
