Itamar Borochov extends the tradition

Jump to Comments

Itamar Borochov joins the long list of Israelis making their mark in jazz music on these shores. The trumpeter has played the Twin Cities on a couple of occasions with Yemen Blues, the Middle Eastern ensemble led by Ravid Kahalani. Borochov strikes out on his own now with a wonderful new album, Boomerang, on the Laborie Jazz label, which is based in Limoges, France. Like many of his compatriots, Borochov melds jazz with Middle Eastern modes on this album of mainly originals; two covers are “Adon Olam,” arranged by Borochov and Nadav Remez, and “Wanderer Song,” a traditional Bukhari tune arranged by Borochov. His trumpet playing soars, and pianist Michael King shines on several songs. — Mordecai Specktor
