Available languages: EnglishIsraeli-born trumpeter Itamar Borochov is a gifted improvisor known for his expansive style of jazz that brings together his love of Sephardic Jewish music, Arabic maqam, and modal post-bop. Following a move to New York in 2007, Borochov gained wider recognition with his 2014 quartet album Outset and 2016 follow-up Boomerang. Born in Jaffa, Israel, Borochov grew up in a creative family the son of noted musician Yisrael Borochov and the brother of bassist Avri Borochov. Growing up, he was exposed to a range of sounds from Sephardic music in his synagogue to Middle Eastern and North African maqams, as well as Mizrahi, Ashkenazi, and other Israeli traditions. He first began playing the trumpet around age 11 and quickly developed a love of jazz. Borochov studied the music throughout his high school years, imbibing the recordings of artists like Miles Davis, Lee Morgan, Wynton Marsalis, and others. In 2007, he moved to New York City to study at the New School, where he took classes with pianist Barry Harris and participated in the Betty Carter Jazz Ahead program. It was while at college that he began developing his stylistically bridged approach to jazz, mixing modal post-bop with the ethnic traditions he grew up with. Along with his straight-ahead jazz gigs, he also found work with like-minded artists including guitarist Nadav Remez and bassist Omer Avital. As a leader, Borochov debuted in 2014 with Outset, a quartet album with saxophonist Hagai Amir, his brother Avri on bass, and drummer Aviv Cohen. Boomerang followed in 2016 and again featured his brother, as well as pianist Michael King and drummer Jay Sawyer. The atmospheric Blue Nights arrived in 2019 and included a guest appearance by the Moroccan collective Innov Gnawa.
