First of all, if you look closely you will see his actual name is Jean Peirre Mas' not Max. I don't know a lot about him, he's a French Canadian musician, teacher, and keyboard player. I heard a cut on the local jazz station and was knocked out by it. So, I found several albums here on emusic, and I downloaded this one. While the tunes might be a bit quirky, they are wonderfully produced, well played, and the tunes grow on you. It gets a fair amount replays in my collection.

They Say All Music Guide

Keyboardist Jean-Pierre Mas’ (H)ombre is consistently impressive. Each selection on his set utilizes slightly different personnel and focuses on a different part of the music. Toots Thielemans’ harmonica, Didier Lockwood’s violin, Juan-José Mosalini’s bandoneon, and Idriss Boudrioua’s saxes are in the spotlight in different times, as is Mas’ haunting voice. The music is sometimes explorative, sometimes melodic, ranging from Afro-Cuban and Brazilian jazz to bits of pop and ballads. Although generally a mixture of Latin music with jazz, the results are constantly unpredictable yet always colorful. This set grows in interest the longer one listens to it, and it is easily recommended. – Scott Yanow
