REVIEWS of Massanetta Springs:

Borgo has the history of the music down pat; his tunes offer a flavoring of post-bop structure, but he steers the bands unerringly into the current era through his gliding improvising style and tune construction.... He touches on the past, teases with the future, but mainly speaks in the present tense.
-- Frank Rubolino, All About Jazz

These guys are genuinely together, really tight, & the recording is of that "classic" quality that will have you spinnin' th' CD over & over again... MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
-- Rotcod Zzaj, Improvijazzation Nation

This album isn't about one person's genius. It's about the beauty of a sextet working songs to the limit.
-- Jon Worley, Aiding&Abetting

Borgo's wild flight over the jouncing rhythm team is fresh and sometimes even dryly laconic... and the original melodies are knotty and memorable. Mr. Borgo and band are looking for a new combination of the elements of 'free' and 'hard bop'... this CD is worth a listen for anybody wanting to hear the beginnings of a new approach.
-- Kenneth Egbert, Jazz Now

David Borgo's Masanetta Springs splashes all over the jazz spectrum, from swing to free... Borgo has a lovely warm tone on tenor sax and a gracious one on soprano.
-- Francois Couture, All Music Guide

Borgo is a saxophonist and composer with a range encompassing both old and new forms of jazz... he's surrounded himself with some sharp players and they go off in really interesting directions.
-- RKF, Dead Angel

Throughout the album we get plenty of fire, as well as passionate serenity... Overall, a very nice set of music.
-- Jerry Kranitz, Aural Innovations

Dischi come non se ne facevano, appunto, da tempo. Dischi come se ne dovrebbero fare, appunto, da tempo. Godibile nel vero senso della parola. (4 stars)
-- Sergio Eletto, Kathodik

Wenn ihr das Album im Laden seht, hört rein und erlebt den puren Genuss.
-- Volkmar Mantei, Ragazzi
