    "Highstein has the uncanny ability to tap
    the listener’s soul with his melodies,
    meticulous arrangements and
    flawless performance."

    Valley Morning Star, Harlingen, Texas.
  • Soprano Saxophone Website
    “Exquisite melodies truly set Max Highstein’s music apart.
    Fresh, seemingly effortless yet rich, born of joy.
    And the performances are world class.”

    ~ Dave Kinnoin: Disney, DreamWorks Songwriter
  • Max Highstein brings forth much more than musical ideas; A deep acumen of complexity and joy is entwined in each note. His latest release, Tiptoes, might be a lighthearted listen, but it is in its melodies we find the genius.
    — The JazzWord
  • "Delicious, relaxing, well performed, recorded
    and arranged, Highstein’s intelligent writing
    suggests chamber orchestra level instrumentation."

    — Western Great Lakes Entertainment Guide.
