Saxophonist, composer and educator Lena Bloch is originally from Moscow, Russia and immigrated to Israel in 1990. She moved to Brooklyn in 2008 and released her debut album Feathery (Thirteenth Note) in 2014. The quartet from that album has evolved into the band of the same name, which features the gifted improvisers, pianist Russ Lossing, bassist Cameron Brown and drummer Billy Mintz. Their second album Heart Knows recently came out on Fresh Sound New Records and is available on www.lenabloch.com. Lena Bloch is also an active woodwinds and jazz improvisation instructor and clinician, a member of the Jazz Education Network, a 2016 National Endowment for the Arts panelist, and a faculty member at Slope Music in Brooklyn.
