Saxophonist and composer Loren Stillman was born in 1980 in London England. Inspired by his uncle, saxophonist Mike Stillman, he began playing at age 7. Raised in Croton-on- Hudson, Stillman had easy access to New York City’s jazz scene where his early teachers included Ted Nash, Dick Oatts and Dave Liebman. Stillman studied classical saxophone with instructor’s Dan Goble and Harvey Pittell at the Boston University Tanglewood Institute in 1995. In studying with these well versed saxophonists, he gained a strong knowledge of Joe Allard’s approach to saxophone playing, emphasizing a natural and relaxed view to the instrument through the study of overtones and vocal manipulation of sound. He has received 2 Outstanding Performance Awards and 2004 Rising Star Jazz Artist from Down Beat Magazine along with a scholarship to attend The Manhattan School of Music (1998) and the Zoot Simms Award to attend New School University (2002)

The poetic nature of his music is owed not only to the artists that have influenced him over ...

La passione di Alban Darche, quarantasettenne tenorsassofonista e compositore bretone, per i grossi organici è nota: ce ne siamo già occupati diverse volte, su queste colonne. Questo suo ultimo lavoro, edito come d'uso su Yolk Music, non fa eccezione: diciotto elementi, big band che più classica non si potrebbe. Per una volta (almeno rispetto al passato) ...
