"His future, in my opinion, is so bright it’s almost blinding. If he follows that light through, we will benefit from his creative exploration along with him … I love this beautiful world of music we live in. It has given us another wondrous gift: Loren Stillman."
– Joe Lovano
"It is clear when listening, that Loren’s talent and diligence has produced a remarkably mature musician. I believe that much of his playing on this disc is as rich and evocative as that of many of the great altoists, regardless of their age."
– Ted Nash
"There is no question that with the right direction, Loren will make his mark in the near future."
– Dave Liebman
"Loren Stillman, a 21-year old from Croton-on-Hudson, NY, hears it [jazz] as a rare, exotic form whose notes inflate and wilt and trill, almost a kind of meditation on texture."
– Ben Ratliff
NY Times 2/2002
"Loren’s the kind of musician who’ll answer all of his questions about music by playing sax and writing music of his own."
– Dick Oatts
"This sure doesn't sound much like a fluke, but a legitimate entry into the jazz world, and a much needed shot of very new blood. This kid is almost scary."
