A stripped-back performance from the London-based multi-instrumentalist.
Robert Stillman may be best known as a saxophonist, but for his new album Reality, released via Orindal earlier this year, he recorded alone, creating what he calls a ‘multi-tracked ensemble of one’, playing, looping and recording on saxophone, clarinet, drums and piano.
For our latest Soho Radio live session, Stillman brought his sax to play two solo renditions – one from the new album and a medley from his 2016 album Rainbow – weaving together serpentine melodies and agile improvisations. Speaking to VF Editor Anton Spice, Stillman also explored a range of influences on his sound, ranging from Milton Nascimento to Laraaji.
