Formidably talented award-winning trumpeter Itamar Borochov takes inspiration from the stirring melody-driven Middle Eastern sounds which have surrounded him since his childhood in the Mediterranean, tracing his journey to the energy-infused streets of New York. The nine original compositions on Borochov’s fourth album celebrate an emergence from a time of hopelessness and loss to recognition of faith in the radiant life force.

Trumpeter Itamar Borochov is creating a new musical hybrid - bringing the sacred sounds of his upbringing to a jazz quartet setting. Borochov first heard Sephardic music in his local synagogue and absorbed these ‘maqams’ (modes) of the greater Middle East and North Africa alongside a range of other musical influences, including the Mizrahi and Ashkenazi musical flavours that are his birthright.

Borochov began playing the trumpet at the age of eleven and immersed himself in the discovery of jazz, inspired by the jazz trumpet lineage of Louis Armstrong, Clark Terry, Miles Davis, Kenny Dorham, Lee Morgan, and Booker Little through to Wynton Marsalis, and citing the influence of Ben Webster for his assured yet wistful warm airy tone. In 2007 Borochov relocated to New York to study at the New School and attend Barry Harris’s weekly workshops.

His deep knowledge of these various musical disciplines is expressed organically in his original jazz writing, building a bridge between the Near East and the modal styles of Miles Davis, John Coltrane and others. ​

Borochov performs on a custom-made Monette 4-valve quarter-tone trumpet which he uses to incorporate Maqams, the Middle Eastern microtonal modes that are the musical language of his traditional upbringing, into his playing.

In addition to recording three albums as a leader, Borochov also appears on three albums with Yemen Blues, of which he was a founding member, arranger and co-producer. He has toured across four continents and performed at prestigious venues such as Lincoln Center, The Kennedy Center, SummerStage at Central Park, Blue Note NY, Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, Bimhuis, Flagey and international festivals including Roskilde, Vitoria, Lviv, Montreal & Ottawa Jazz Festivals, London Jazz Festival, Moscow Jazz Festival, Tel Aviv & Red Sea Jazz Festivals, Jazz à Liège & Shanghai World Music Festival. The Itamar Borochov Quartet was chosen to showcase at WOMEX 2019 in Tampere, Finland.

Borochov won the prestigious 2020 LetterOne 'Rising Stars' Jazz Award European edition, which was presented to him in February 2021 by vocalist Dee Dee Bridgewater.
