Lena Bloch has been a part of New York jazz scene since 2008.

Originally from Russia, she graduated from Cologne Conservatory in Germany and performed in Europe with Keith Copeland, Mal Waldron, Steve Reid. In the US, Lena earned her Masters degree from UMass Amherst. After moving to New York, she performed at the Lady Got Chops Festival (with Sumi Tonooka Quartet in 2010 and 2011) and at the Staten Island Jazz Festival (with Vishnu Wood Quartet in 2011 and 2012).

This would be Lena's debut CD in the US. She is dedicating her work to her long-time teachers Lee Konitz and Warne Marsh.

The album will also feature Cameron Brown on bass, Billy Mintz on drums and Dave Miller on guitar. The interaction within the group, collective improvising, spontaneous musical decisions will enhance the performance of original material and re-arranged standards.
