Here some media reviews of my music:

"The Max Perkoff Band is a tight outfit. They lean into each other, read emotion and movement, and come up with a cohesive musicality that evolves in several styles. At the outset they find their reckoning in a bop beat in “New Life.” The tune is enough to make one salivate for more and the band does not disappoint....Perkoff shows his lyrical side on the piano as well, his notes flowing with gentle, rippling passion." - Jerry D'Souza,

"Perkoff is influenced by J.J. Johnson and is a chordal-based bop soloist at heart, but his improvisations are unpredictable and are free of clichés. He held his own with Roswell Rudd in his previous record Monk’s Bones, and he excels with his modern mainstream quartet. "Infinite Search" should result in Max Perkoff becoming better known and rated high among modern jazz trombonists." - Scott Yanow, Los Angeles Jazz Scene

"Max Perkoff favors a fairly straightforward tone; the integrity of his lines is what counts." - Kevin Whitehead, "Fresh Air" on National Public Radio.
