Itamar Borochov

(Website)

Israeli-born, Brooklyn-based trumpeter & composer Itamar Borochov connects lower Manhattan to North Africa, modern Israel and ancient Bukhara, celebrating traces of the divine that he finds in elegant sophistication, Middle Eastern tradition and downhome blues. Borochov brings a unique sound with him wherever he goes. Deeply immersed in the jazz tradition, Borochovʼs search for his personal roots resulted in an ever-expanding love for Arab and Pan-African musical sensibilities – a natural palette for a trumpeter-composer raised in Jaffa, an integrated Muslim-Jewish-Christian city.

After working with such legendary artists as Curtis Fuller and Candido Camero, and having served as arranger and co-producer for acclaimed world music sensation Yemen Blues, Borochov set out on his own path. His critically acclaimed debut recording Outset (2014) was included in the New York City Jazz Record’s Best of 2014 List, and his forthcoming album Boomerang was chosen as “revelation of the month” on Jazz Magazine. Audiences worldwide are falling for his enchanting sound and virtuosic expression.

Borochov has performed internationally at such prestigious venues and festivals as Lincoln Center (NY), The Kennedy Center, (Washington DC), SummerStage at Central Park (NY), Roskilde Festival (Denmark), Ethno Port Festival (Poland), Montreal Jazz Festival, Moscow Jazz Festival, and more. He has performed showcases at such important conventions as APAP, Babel Med, Womex, and Jazzahead.

Itamar Borochov, quickly gaining international recognition as a jazz innovator, continues his musical quest, offering on Boomerang a music that reflects a rich global landscape seen firsthand, through the jazz tradition.

Described by the Jerusalem Post as “A rising star in today’s jazz music world,” Itamar Borochov brings a unique sound with him wherever he goes.
