Black Cat JAZZ@theEDGE! Presents…

The Itamar Borochov Quartet

“His melodies are direct and often plangent, his harmonies and rhythms sturdy and repetitious. His latest album, “Blue Nights,” draws together influences from the Middle East and North Africa with jazz-academy thinking.” — The New York Times

Raised in the cosmopolitan Israeli port city of Jaffa, Borochov is a significant presence on the international jazz scene who is creating a new musical hybrid — bringing the sacred sounds of his upbringing to a jazz quartet setting. His third release Blue Nights (2019) is a nine-track multicultural joyride of enchanting lyricism, exotic motifs, anthemic builds and virtuosic expression.

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.

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. He returned to the studio in New York in 2022 with his quartet and producer Matt Pierson​ to record his fourth album, due for release in 2023.
