Raised in the cosmopolitan port city of Jaffa, now a significant presence on the New York jazz scene, Borochov is creating
a new musical hybrid - bringing the sacred sounds of his upbringing to a classic jazz quartet setting.
His latest release “Blue Nights” (Laborie Jazz 2019) is a nine-track multi-cultural joyride of enchanting lyricism, exotic
motifs, anthemic builds and virtuosic expression.
Borochov 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, including the Mizrahi and Ashkenazi musical flavors
that are his birthright
