O’s Notes: Composer and tenor saxophonist Lena Bloch assembles a quartet with Russ Lossing (p), Cameron Brown (b) and Billy Mintz (d) for Rose of Lifta, the village in Jerusalem that has survived the fate of demolition by countless empires from the Romans to the British. The music, seven originals written by either Bloch or Lossing, are songs, instrumental stories of survival.
