The 50 Intimate Nights Live tour with Maxwell with Marsha Ambrosius is being well-received so far. Reviews suggest a lot of love from fans, critics, and the artists themselves. Here’s a little snapshot on Ambrosius from An’Twane Folk’s review on ratedrnb.com:

“After digesting a grand helping of bass, and watching the audience respond positively in nods to her socially-charged ballad and arousing vocals, Ambrosius brought out the intimacy with “Say Yes,” from her time as Floetry’s frontwoman.”

Folk goes on to describe a confident Maxwell who admits he’s a bit nervous:

“Shortly after, Maxwell bashfully shared that he suffers from stage fright. The modest statement from the singer is interestingly hard to believe, especially after giving us falsetto galore with ‘Fortunate.’

“The neo-soul crooner acknowledged his Haitian-Puerto Rican roots, and his love for all things black, especially the music, which he proclaimed, ‘that’s all I know.’

“Maxwell’s claim of being anxious continued to hold no weight. The performer jumped out during his ‘Lake By the Ocean’ segment where he saw seen whining carelessly, dipping it low and picking it up slowly to the Caribbean-tinged track.”

Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter Maxwell recently released his 5th album, “BlackSUMMERS’night.”
