Tilman Urbach - Fono Forum magazine (Germany) - November 2009
"... Stillman produces an artistic musical statement, enamored by the ensemble’s uncanny ability to fuse eloquence with spiralling storylines. It’s all supercharged with the musicians’ impressive chops to complement their synergistic group-focused interactions."

"Winter Fruits is an exceedingly mature recording for a saxophonist who is only 29 years old."
Mark Corroto - All About Jazz - 14 October 2009
"...Winter Fruits is an excellent album, further indication that Stillman is worthy of the praise he has recieved for his gift as a saxophonist and composer. Joined by an exceptional band on the CD ... Stillman was able to sketch elaborate designs. Each member added a detail, enriching the architecture of the compositions. As a result, the album produced by jason Seizer, is elegantly formed... The best trait of Winter Fruits is consistency. Begining to end, there is no question of what we have: this is a direct, complex, well-composed jazz recording. A refreshing treat for loyalists who repeatedly declare that real jazz is deceased."
Loren Stillman - examiner.com - 29 September 2009
"...The smart young alto saxophonist Loren Stillman has a graceful new album, ’Winter Fruist’ (Pirouet), and highlights the intuitive rapport of this band."
Nate Chinen - The New York Times - 30 September 2009
"...Looking for the next generation of jazz genius? Look no further than Loren Stillman and friends, who are bringing into being some of the most provocative music around."
