Exquisitely inspiring music Max Highstein – Tip Toes

Exquisitely inspiring music Max Highstein – TIP TOES:  Multi-instrumentalist Max plays soprano, alto and tenor saxes, clarinet, piano, organ and fretless bass on this June 18, 2021 release full of exquisitely inspiring music that you’ll fall in love with just as quickly as I did… I truly enjoyed listening to him explain in his own words why he makes music…

You’ll find a lot of other most enjoyable performances when you SUBSCRIBE to Max’s YouTube channel… I signed up right away.

Max pulled in some splendid high-energy musicians to back up his songs, too… Ed Willett does cello; Jeff Pevar plays guitar; John Yoakum does flute; Rusty Crutcher plays alto & tenor sax on Path Of The Heart and Mark Clark does drum kit, udu, doumbek and congas… as I listen to their stunning interplay on “All Bounced Up”, I can’t help but get up and move these old hips… great bass and lead guitar lines on this tune!

There’s a strong stirring of emotions on the beautiful “The Weaver’s Tale”… this song takes me back to my freedom-filled countryside treks through fields and pastures when times were much simpler… great recording and superb sax play makes this a tune you will remember (and play) often.

It was Max’s organ playing on “Meanwhile In The Backseat” that made it my choice for personal favorite of the eleven exciting tunes offered up for our jazz joy… there’s a “roots” kinda’ energy on this song that only “real” players can achieve!

I give Max and all his players a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98.  Get more information on Max’s website as it becomes available.                  Rotcod Zzaj
