Itamar Borochov Quartet
Saturday, Feb 2, 2019 | 8:00 PM
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, Borochov's 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.
