Feels So Good never felt so good...

Gabriel Mark Hasselbach's album Tongue & Groove spawned his 11th Billboard hit with Chill@Will! 

But there are some juicy tracks on that project which may not get as much attention, like Feels So Good.

No one has ever covered Chuck Mangione's iconic 1986 version, so since Gabriel has been handed the flugelhorn baton, he decided to reinvent an homage to the classic track. To that end, Gabriel enlisted Grant Geissman, the ORIGINAL guitarist on Mangione's version (who is currently charting with his own projects), and serendipitously is playing the exact same guitar he used on that evergreen song. Holding down the fort on rhythm and programming is the ubiquitous Miles Black, with Tony Moore on drums and of course Gabriel on flugelhorn.

Guest artists include Marc Antoine, Jeff Lorber, Paul Brown, Ronny Jordan, Rob Tardik, Darren Rahn, Chuck Loeb, Warren Hill, Brian Bromberg, Bob Baldwin, Greg Manning, Rock Hendriks, and more....  

" ......with Gabriel leading the charge. Contemporary jazz fans can’t miss with this one!" D. Oscar Groomes O's Place Jazz Newsletter http://www.OsPlaceJazz.com
"...Hasselbach and keyboardist Jeff Lorber are the dream team be it as performers or composers of this album. Gabriel Mark Hasselbach shining on flute and trumpet again. Listening to Radio Gold is pure pleasure, but for the radio programmer rather a torture, because he delivers such an almost inexhaustible selection of highly qualified songs. Never before has the title of an album been so appropriate as in this case. I seldom had such a superb collection to review! ” Hans-Bernd Hülsmann, Düsseldorf, Germany Reviewer for Smooth Jazz Daily at smooth-jazz.de
".... hornmeister Gabriel Mark Hasselbach has outdone himself. Gabriel proves here that he can handle everything, and it’s easy to see why he can stand next to Rick Braun, Chris Botti, Cindy Bradley. I’m very pleased to be a part of his musical friends. This album is not only gold for the radio but also for your personal collection!"
