A few Gabriel CD party favours

I have some other CDs that are great party favours in case you'd like to mix it up a bit. 

Click the titles to sample the album. The player is at the bottom of each of the pages.

The guys probably like the slightly groovier stuff, similar to Open Invitation, but here are two more Billboard charting albums of mine.

Kissed By The Sun

Cool Down

I have a couple of beautiful spa type releases for the ladies

Wind At Nightfall

Secret Fire

These are the only titles I have bulk of besides Open Invitation


Gabriel Swings Hard

Gabriel Mark Hasselbach has been a jazzer all his life and grew up listening to late night jazz radio shows featuring Dizzy Gillespie, Blue Mitchell, Lee Morgan, Donald Byrd, Miles Davis, and Chet Baker.

Although he is skilled in New Orleans and Contemporary jazz styles, he is a hard swinging mainstream trumpeter with the jazz legacy under his belt.

Here are a few tunes to stream from his JazzWeek charting albums Come Out Swingin' and Swingin' Affair and some live videos, including Night in Tunisia, that tell his story:

Blue Miles  (solo at 3:30)

Senor Blues   (solo at 1:05)

Nutville    (solo at 2:00)

Lover Come Back To Me   (solo at 3:00)


Gabriel's New PoCo Venue Dec 3

I have an opening night out PoCo way at a cool new venue where they really appreciate the music!

Come support my first night there and let's make a big splash and show them how it's done!


1545 Lougheed Hwy, Port Coquitlam (map) - not far from the Terry Fox Theatre

Food available in the lounge but is a limited menu from Izba Bistro in the hotel.



"Look out Rick Braun. Move over Chris Botti. Gabriel Mark Hasselbach is a talent to be reckoned with." Joseph Bertie The Warner Music Group

From a Superstar: 
Gabriel Mark Hasselbach's new CD "Open Invitation" on which he wrote all the tunes and plays trumpet, flugel, alto and C flutes, ‘valve bone, and EVI, is a tour de force of arranging and production. Each tune also features a famous guest artist all of whom fit perfectly into the picture. Gabriel sounds great on everything.... no easy task, and should be really proud of this one! You'll find yourself humming these tunes when you least expect it!  .......  Randy Brecker

From Switzerland:
Gabriel - Open Invitation (2014) “Trumpet player Gabriel Mark Hasselbach - or just ‘Gabriel’ - comes up with an awesome album full of memorable tracks and tons of first-rate guest players, like Bob Mintzer, Bob Baldwin, Greg Manning and many others. The music is groovy and offers a lot of variety, the musicianship is on a high level, and the smooth trumpet and flugelhorn playing of the leader holds it all together. Great stuff!”  ~  Peter Boehi Smoothvibes.com Switzerland

From Germany:
“With Open Invitation it becomes apparent that Gabriel needn't shy away from comparison with any other trumpeter in the world.” Hans-Bernd Hülsmann, Smooth-Jazz.de

From Belgium:
"An open invitation to get acquainted with Gabriel’s music.... It’s been 3 years since I reviewed Gabriel’s latest album ‘Kissed by the Sun’ here, and for this new one he set to top that. Next to his fiery trumpet and spacious flute, he gave other musicians the opportunity to help him, and those are keyboardists Greg Manning, Bob Baldwin and Cal Harris Jr., Bob Mintzer (Yellowjackets sax), Rock Hendricks (Paul Hardcastle sax), as well as breakout stars such as guitarists Adam Rohrlick and Olaf deShield. Opener and second single ‘Count Me In’ features guitarist Adam Rohrlick and Gabriel blows a laidback groove. The first single ‘Propulsion’ features Greg Manning on piano and landed in the top 15. The title track is a really smooth tune with Cal Harris Jr. on keyboards, while ‘Init2Winit’ is a happy song. On ‘Charmed Life’ you can hear the piano of Bob Baldwin, while romance is in the air on the ballad ‘Lovelight’ with vocalists Dee & Brittani Cole. After that comes ‘Let’s Do This Thang’ with Olaf deShield on guitar, but it’s the latinesque ‘Let It Slide’ with sax man Bob Mintzer that turns it funky. ‘Aurora Borealis’ is more relaxed, and Gabriel takes us to the islands with ‘Carte Blanche’. Indeed, a nice melodic album, that shows Gabriel’s versatility. There’s not a bad track here!" Patrick Van de Wiele     http://www.smoothjazz.eu/
