"Robert Stillman is a multi-faceted genius. A virtuoso of DIY, one-player improvisation. A master of color, restraint, and powerful world-building." - Undrcurrents
"Recording by himself, Stillman layers saxophone, clarinet, drums, and piano. While the one-man-band approach can so often result in antiseptic, too carefully controlled sounds, Stillman’s work here remains loose, imaginative, and even conversational. Stillman is having a dialogue with himself. It’s a lively one, and you are invited to listen in." - Aquarium Drunkard
