Music for jazz connoisseurs. Alto saxophonist Loren Stillman has an amazingly creative head on his shoulders. His music is refined, with a finely-shaded feeling for the unique. His world of sound is like paradise. A world in which you are seduced by style and uncommon beauty. A journey overflowing with unorthodox sounds and elemental surprises.

Saxophonist and composer Loren Stillman, from Brooklyn New York, is hailed as "a writer and a stylist that has found a previously unoccupied slot in the jazz spectrum." (Jazz Review UK) Stillman has been recognized as one of today’s truly original creative voices by The New York Times, Downbeat Magazine, Jazziz, Jazz-Times and National Public Radio. A former student of Lee Konitz and David Liebman, he has performed and recorded throughout the United States, Europe and Japan with his own ensembles, and with those led by Charlie Haden, Paul Motian, Carla Bley, John Abercrombie, Andy Milne’s DAPP Theory, Michele Rosewoman, Joe Lovano, Eivind Opsvik, Tyshawn Sorey, Vic Juris and The Vanguard Jazz Orchestra.

Recipient of two Outstanding Performance Awards (1996 & 1998) and the Rising Star Jazz Artist Award (2004) from Down Beat Magazine, Stillman received scholarships to attend The Manhattan School of Music (1998) and the New School University (2002).
