Most men refer to Maxine as sexy. When she opened her mouth, she reminded me of no one. With the Blues, she's rhythmic and projects a highly visual performance with her lips and hips that steadily move. One of the greatest vocal talents.
- Gertrude Gipson, Los Angeles Sentinel
Maxine Weldon is simply spectacular... The room is shaking and rolling with her spectacular voice and energetic delivery.
- Conrod Silvert, San Francisco Chronicle
Dynamic, belting style... Weldon used her own kind of improvisation, freshening everything in a strong resonant voice with a throaty, breathy sound. Thi is contemporary jazz at its best.

A dynamite show from a dynamite lady.
Maxine Weldon opening for Johnny Mathis: Maxine is the type of singer who gives her audience chills - chills from the incredible vocal range.
- BM, Cash Box
...belting out ballads and blues. She had the power of Helen Humes and the heat of Dinah Washington.
- Los Angeles Magazine
She sings with effortless power, lilting grace and infectious exuberance. She experiences her songs - sometimes joyfully, sometimes with deep-down bluesy sadness, always with soul. A perfect show. Well-done, Maxine Weldon.
- Hollywood Reporter
Weldon's amiable personality and clear, powerful voice pull everybody's attention to the stage.
- Huet, Variety
Maxine Weldon is a bright, effusive artist who builds enthusiasm with an impressible flow of energy. Her program contrasted a series of effervescent blues numbers with attractive ballads. Weldon sang with a surging rhythmic feeling and an impressive desire to tell the story without sacrificing the song. She's a performer who deserves to be more widely heard.
- Don Heckman, Los Angeles Times
with John Stephens' Cool Blue 0rchesltra (including Charles Owens on Sax, Al Viola on Guitar): ...Weldon did a marvelous job on her portion of the set, singing 'All 0f Me", "Can't Give You Anything But Love" and 'Teach Me Tonight".
