'Blue Nights' in Istanbul with Borochov's trumpet

Israeli trumpet player Itamar Borochov is known for his extensive palette of music. He brings together the most unique sounds of the Mediterranean with jazz. His colourful musical journey began when he 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. He was introduced to the trumpet when he was only 11 years old, studied in New York, and worked with legendary musicians such as Junior Mance, Charles Tolliver, Jimmy Owens, Cecil Bridgewater and Jo Chambers. He is known to add a new piece to his musical mosaic with each concert, which is why his Istanbul performance is a matter of utter curiosity. Don't miss this magical night where the sounds of his latest album Blue Nights will echo in the cool waters of the Bosphorus. Before Borochov's performance, Eylül Ergül, who is noted for her vocal skills, will be on stage with her quartet consisting of Bulut Gülen, Ozan Musluoğlu and Mehmet Ali Şimayli.
