Loren Stillman

Born:

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)

Read "Christoph Irniger's Open City: Retracing The Tenor's Evolution On Intakt Records" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann


A sound poet of sorts, Swiss tenor saxophonist Christoph Irniger has gained quite a reputation for his lyrical tone and creative penmanship, more often than not responsible for the majority of the memorable repertoire he records and performs. The poetic nature of his music is owed not only to the artists that have influenced him over ...

Alban Darche: Le Gros Cube #2

Read "Le Gros Cube #2" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro


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) ...

David Ambrosio: Four On The Road

Read "Four On The Road" reviewed by Glenn Astarita


Bassist David Ambrosio and his trio indulge in smooth sailing, partly due to alto saxophonist Loren Stillman's feathery tones via these largely, medium-tempo bop works, complete with contrapuntal type exchanges and spry breakouts. Several of these piece seem to intertwine within a similar framework and cadence, although there are a few free-form sorties, sparked ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
