Bad Touch:

Loren Stillman, Saxophone
Nate Radley, Guitar
Gary Versace, Organ
Ted Poor, Drums

In a musical age of predominantly solo careers, Bad Touch – alto saxophonist Loren Stillman, guitarist Nate Radley, organist Gary Versace, and drummer Ted Poor – has set out to nurture their identity as a collective. With a shared goal of developing improvised music, these likeminded musicians draw on a wide spectrum of jazz improvisational techniques within original compositions. Bad Touch believes that mutual friendship and commitment yield the most fulfilling musical adventures, and aims for their work to reflect this philosophy.

As freelance musicians, each has collaborated, recorded, and traveled internationally with some of the most established names in jazz, including Bill Frisell, Paul Motian, Cuong Vu, Chris Potter, Ben Monder, Billy Hart, John Scofield, Maria Schneider, John Abercrombie, Al Foster and Charlie Haden.

Like a Magic Kiss marks the first self-release by the collective, CD's available at CD Baby and Itunes.

"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, fast, loud, slow, in tempo out of tempo, free composed, cluttered, sparse, swinging and non. And it has chosen all of them.
