Max Highstein is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, and recording artist with roots in jazz, rock, and classical music.

Avoiding the pinched, thin soprano sound so often heard in the Smooth Jazz idi­om, Highstein’s tone is rich, expressive, and warm. Soprano sax guru Joe Giardullo says, “Max Highstein has a wonderful voice on the soprano, and I don’t get to say that very often, really.” Exquisite melodies truly set Max Highstein’s music apart – so fresh, seemingly effortless yet rich, born of joy.
