Infinite Search, the Max Perkoff Band, the brand new CD by the Max Perkoff Band, represents Max Perkoff's most compelling project to date. That's saying a lot, for as a trombonist, pianist, composer and bandleader, Max Perkoff is a musician of grace, depth and impressive achievement, with several striking recordings as a leader to his name, and a recent chart-busting collaboration with trombone great Roswell Rudd. Perkoff has impressive bloodlines, as well; he's the son of pianist Si Perkoff, one of the founding fathers of San Francisco bebop.
The Max Perkoff Band will celebrate the release of Infinite Search with a performance at Jazz at Pearl's on Thursday, April 12, 2007. Jazz at Pearl's (www.jazzatpearls.com) is located at 256 Columbus Avenue in the heart of San Francisco's North Beach District. Shows are at 8:00 and 10:00 pm, with doors opening at 7:30....
...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
