Hotcakes – Coming 10/21/22
Max Highstein’s latest release, Hotcakes, brings his sax playing to the forefront. His reed sound is bold without being strident; singing and whimsical on soprano sax, and funk inspired on alto and tenor. He also surprises on guitar, handily laying down slippery solos and smooth backing rhythms on several tracks. Four of the tunes are vocal pieces, with catchy lyrics and a personable, rich delivery.
