”Perkoff's effervescent personality did positively affect both his and his colleagues' playing. He's relaxed on the 'bone, has a nice tone and doesn't try to play 64 notes per measure.” --Phil Elwood, San Francisco Examiner

”...while playing piano, he exhibits the expertise and ease of a natural musician.” --Tom W. Kelly, San Francisco Bay Times

”Max Perkoff's Nights With Lady Day played Saturday night at Pacifica's Sanchez Concert Hall and from note one, the audience strolled back to the rhythms of Swing Era sweet while keeping their temperature in the hip and now.” --Jean Bartlett, Pacifica Tribune
