This is an event associated with the Spotlight on Israeli Culture led by the Toronto Downtown Jazz and Canada-Israel Cultural Foundation.
This year’s Israeli Jazz Showcase features:
Itamar Borochov Quartet
w/ Aviva Chernick (Opening Act)
“To open, lush soundscapes and subtle percussion grooves lay the ground for Aviva Chernick’s crystalline and soaring vocals in a reimagining of traditional Balkan Ladino repertoire along with original Hebrew melodies. Then 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 – demonstrating why the Itamar Borochov Quartet’s latest album Boomeranghas been receiving worldwide critical acclaim.”
