Critics:
 
“Loren Stillman is one of New York's best alto saxophonists, and has gained that distinction well before reaching age 30.”
-David Adler, Jazz Times Magazine

“a writer and a stylist that has found a previously unoccupied slot in the jazz spectrum” 
-Jazz Review UK

"Stillman writes music that’s intricate but unforced and devoid of pretension...just as important, he has a distinctive sound on his instrument — full but dry, with only the slightest intimation of vibrato — and he shows restraint and consideration in his solos. When a song opens up rhythmically, as happens often here, he sets an agenda without closing off alternative options. He’s a watchful sort of improviser, rigorous about everything, including the unknown.”
-Nate Chinen, New York Times 

“Bad Touch is a young group facing the usual embarrassment of riches. It’s looking at 60 or so years of style and temperament in American jazz: soft, loud, fast, slow, in tempo, out of tempo, free, composed, cluttered, sparse, swinging and non-. And it has chosen all of them.”
-Ben Ratliff, New York Times
