About Itamar Borochov
Itamar Borochov, an Israeli trumpet player and composer from Brooklyn, connects Lower Manhattan with North Africa, modern Israel and ancient Bukhara, celebrating the traces of the divine he finds in elegant sophistication, Middle Eastern tradition and home blues. Borochov brings with him a unique sound wherever he goes. Deeply immersed in the jazz tradition, the search for his personal roots has given rise to an ever-growing love for Arab and pan-African musical sensibilities - a natural palette for a trumpeter-composer raised in Jaffa, an integrated Muslim, Jewish and Christian city.
About Brian Jackson
Brian Jackson began writing songs in 1970 with classmate Gil Scott- Heron. Their partnership produced some of the most fiercely poignant, politically charged, and significantly soulful albums of the seventies. 'Pieces of a Man', 'Free Will', 'Winter in America', 'First Minute of a New Day', 'From South Africa to South Carolina', 'Bridges' and 'Secrets' are coveted by collectors and conscious-minded music fans alike.
About Ilhan Ersahin's trio
With drummer Kenny Wollesen (Tom Waits, John Zorn, Norah Jones) and Dave Harrington (of electronic duo Darkside) guitar/bass/electronics, Ilhan Ersahin captures the vibe of impromptu, cross-pollinating, and heavily grooving late-night jam sessions...” (New York Times).
