More articles about Max Perkoff
”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
