Gabriels new single Count Me In

Welcome to the Radio Single Download Page for Gabriel Mark Hasselbach, powered by New World 'n' Jazz Radio Promotions.

Gabriel is a unique cat, an Artist/Producer playing trumpet, flute, flugelhorn, trombone, and EVI.... a peerless feat! With a dozen albums out, a variety of kudos including JUNOs (Canadian equiv of a Grammy), plus Album of the Year and Instrumentalist of the Year awards, he has carved out a unique and polished niche. Gabriel has had five singles of his own chart in the Billboard Top 20, and a few Top 5's as featured soloist with Paul Hardcastle and Bob Baldwin.

The new cd Open Invitation had an exciting launch, with the first single, Propulsion, debuting as #1 Most Added and charted on Billboard at #17.

The second single, aptly named 'Count Me In' is out of the starting gate now and here for you! 

Going For Adds Aug 17~  so satisfy your cravings and get in the loop with an easy download of your choice belowRather than the expensive, wasteful, and inefficient CD mailouts of yore, we would like you to quickly and easily preview and download the new powerhouse radio edit from Gabriel.

OPEN INVITATION has already made a strong impact at Billboard and Reporting Stations since its release a few months ago, and just been submitted for Grammy consideration. The album features stellar guests such as Greg ManningBob Mintzer (Yellowjackets)Bob Baldwin (Gabriel was featured on Bob's recent chart toppers Seabreeze and Chameleon 3000)Cal Harris Jr. (Shelter Island)Rock Hendricks (Paul Hardcastle)Lew Laing (Paul Brown), and  Adam Rohrlick, who is featured guitarist on Count Me In.

Final round of picking Single Number 2!

Hi Friends and Knowledgeable Colleagues!

Propulsion, the first single from Open Invitation, made a pretty decent dent in Billboard and got the support of reporting stations, and now it is on to number 2!

I know I have asked you to weigh in on a second single pick before, but I am here again asking for a another listen to decide the final round.... There are many songs to like, but what song fits the radio format best?

COUNT ME IN seems to get a lot of love all 'round, but INIT2WINIT seems to have similar or maybe better attributes, like slick guitar, and horn tradeoffs. It is punchier and sounds alot like summer, and besides also adding sax, it has slightly more exciting solos throughout.

We are down to only these two, and are aiming for a July 15 Going For Adds date, so please cast your vote once again!  Respond to

Many thanks in advance.....
