Maximillion, or "Max" as his friends call him, loves cooking Italian for his family, and in particular perfecting his scratch pasta recipe. Keep an eye out for him at the B Spot, too. When Max is resting his fingers from his bass, he's been known to take to the valves of a trumpet. He a fan of music from the big band era and jazz from the 40s, 50s, and 60s. John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderly and Frank Rosolino are just a few of a long list of his favorites.
