The dance scene immediately embraced the project and local radio stations were awed by the progressive approach Massicot took for his first album.

"Fantagious" - How it Evolved
Fantagious'' catchy title, a combination of Fantasy & Contagious, leads us into a world of funky arrangements & original compositions that keep listeners moving until the last number. The talented pianist manages to tastefully challenge the traditional approach to Latin Jazz with his infusion of R&B & caribbean nuances. His melodies and montunos are hip and illustrate how Latin music is beginning to evolve...an evolution is what Fantagious is about. This percussive driven project starts with the extremely danceable "Maiden Voyage," which is a savory variation of Herbie Hancock''s masterpiece.
The horns come as a pleasant delight in which the smooth yet mesmerizing saxophones are complimented with the intensely driven trumpet. Although the real treat ultimately comes from bassist Panagiotis Andreou who holds down the rhythm section with his unorthodox yet swinging style. He even blesses the hypnotizing "Rumba Walk" with a vocal surprise. The icing on the cake is Joel''s original composition "Clowning Around" which has been lauded by many as his future to composing a Hollywood movie score.

It is no surprise that with this outstanding cast of musicians, Fantagious is full of flavor and swing. What sets it apart from any other Latin Jazz album are the dynamic compositions and arrangements that Joel cooked up. He shows his maturity in all aspects of this production going above and beyond any set expectations. It seems he has figured out the formula to intrigue listeners and, more importantly, keep them glued for the entire CD.
