MCM Vol. 3 - Preview for Industry Associates

MidCentury Modern Vol. 3 follows in the footsteps of Vol. 1 & 2

I figured I'd do something a little different for this recent album session, and the classic organ combo was the answer. I grew up on Jimmy Smith and the whole cadre, and always had that smoky groove in the back of my mind. Jason DeCouto, Nick Bracewell, and I already had a working trio and had all worked with John Lee, so that was the missing piece.  

I sent these to my friend Randy Brecker to get some feedback and song order suggestions, and he wrote back with this paragraph, which will make nice liner notes!

"Gabriel Mark Hasselbach is constantly honing his various crafts, as a multi-instrumentalist, composer/arr, and producer, and has come up with a new album that is his best yet, delving into Hammond B3 OrganTrio territory. I know this terrain well, growing up in Philly Pa. (from whence this style originated) and Gabe and company are right in the groove! Poppin'!"
