From USA:

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..... 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 ..... multiple Grammy winning trumpeter (Brecker Bros, etc)

"Canadian trumpeter Gabriel Mark Hasselbach returns on Open Invitation with his proven formula for success: a cadre of talented guest artists, fresh, funky rhythms ... in yet another winning set from GMH"   D. Oscar  Groomes, O's Place Jazz

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 Daily

From Canada:

"I recently received trumpeter Gabriel Hasselbach's new cd Open Invitation and I highly recommend it!  It's fast, classy and progressive and full of great all-star guest performers. I can see why the first single release, Propulsion, with special guest Greg Manning is sweeping the jazz world - it's just great music! I guarantee months of repeat playing of Gabriel's new music on my jazz program! Keep up the good work and great music Gabriel!"   Bill Sharpe, host of Newfoundland's only jazz program Cool Jazz On The Coast     (see more)

From Switzerland:

Gabriel - Open Invitation (2014)
Trumpet player Gabriel Mark Hasselbach - currently calling himself 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!

Booking info

Let's book a date!

Gabriel's latest single 'Ready When You Are' is climbing the Billboard charts and it will be his third Billboard charting track from his latest release Kissed By The Sun, and his fourth under his own name. He has another half dozen as featured artist on tracks by artists such as Paul Hardcastle, Bob Baldwin, Rob Tardik, and Steve Oliver . 

The award winning multi-horn maestro Gabriel had the pleasure to tour extensively this last year in support of his third Billboard charting track 'Lock It Up' (which stayed on Billboard 15 weeks and most radio charts for nine months), and now his newest single 'Ready When You Are' is up on Billboard, too! Gabriel has spent more time on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz charts than any other Canadian performer, and has won Album of the Year and Instrumentalist of the Year Awards, as well as a JUNO (Canadian equivalent to a Grammy). He also has two straight ahead releases, one of which made a long stay on Jazz Week...

He has developed a really rocking show, full of contemporary and mainstream jazz content, and has played from California to Detroit, with lots of stops in between. He succeeds in keeping audiences pumped and enthralled. This spring he played three shows during the New Orleans French Quarter Fest including Mahogany Jazz Hall, then went over to Orlando and Ft. Lauderdale, and then on to a Freeport, then on to Phoenix, then Las Vegas for the City of Lights Jazz, Rhythm & Blues Festival where he performed with the fabulous Nick Colionne. A bit later in the summer he will be performing at the Jazz On Blue Mountain Fest in Ontario for his own show, and also as guest on the Gino Vanelli show, then as part of the Canadian Brass and Steel Show with Rob Tardik-guitar, Walle Larsson-saxes, and GMH-trumpet, flugelhorn, flute, at the The Lyric Theatre in Winnipeg.
