Canadian sax player, Michael Massaro has the rare knack of presenting a tune that is instantly appealing. A seasoned performer with a style that is both relaxing and compelling, Dream Weavers is laid back and yet energetic with its interplay between the instruments. This original composition, consisting of guitars, percussion, electric and acoustic pianos set the tone of what's to come. The strong Gato Barbieri-style melody is at times majestic. Delicate electric piano phrases present an appealing distraction from the theme. The string arrangement is subtle, yet enhances the piece. About half way through this smooth arrangement is a nice guitar cameo. The bass and percussion form a reliable platform for this catchy tune. Right at the end like a fisherman with a salmon at the end of his line, Michael Massaro reels you in with some spectacular sax runs. Dream Weavers has been featured on my programme on many occasion.

Mr. Massaro has done an excellent job with his refreshing new compositions and his arrangements are very well thought out. His playing is quite outstanding, plaintive and with emotion and feeling and the other Musicians do him considerable justice. Two albums of the highest quality and the mixture of tempos and rhythms make for an excellent mix. Full marks to Mr Massaro and all involved with the recordings, as the old saying goes " class will out ". Best Regards. John Reid. Keith Community Radio 102.8 FM. Keith. Banffshire. SCOTLAND.”
