The VEJI band made quite a stir upon arrival, and was First Place Winner of the 1981 Canadian Stage Band Festival.

Under the direction of the late Hugh Fraser, the band soared to unheard of heights for many years. This vinyl album was Executive Produced by Rocket Norton, and Produced by (Gabriel) Mark Hasselbach at Bullfrog Studios. Full credits are on the artwork. 

This is being posted in honour of the passing of founding member Hugh Fraser in 2020, and the 2023 passing of Jamie Croil, member and lead trumpeter on this recording.

Here is my work-in-progress album project, Count Your Lucky Stars, slated for a spring 2024 release. None of these are final, but at approx 90% complete. I will update tracks in the background as they get nearer completion, so check back often.

The pairing of Gabriel and Lew Laing Jr (who co authored Gabe's Billboard charting album Open Invitation) is a match made in heaven! Lew plays most all rhythm instruments and programming, Gabe plays trumpet, flute, flugelhorn, C and alto flutes). Guest appearances from Alfie Zappacosta, Miles Black, Eddie Bullen, Andrew Jacob Scott, and more.

This page is for close industry associates to help guide this project to a radio single pick- it feels like an embarrassment of riches sometimes- and finding the catchiest earworm may take some time.

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!"

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'!"

Here is the storyline:

I’ll Be There This Christmas 

The flugelhorn - a German word meaning winged horn- is the perfect instrument for Gabriel to present ‘I’ll Be There This Christmas’ to the world.

The oft-told tale of a musician on the road, missing out on important family milestones, frames this storyline. 

Loneliness and longing give way to a bright outcome as all parties set in motion a journey to a long-awaited Christmas reunion. 

Gabriel’s sweet sound drives the concept, and orchestrations by Daniel Seguin perfectly underscores the memorable melody and chorus.

Radio spot for I'll Be There This Christmas 



Gabriel Mark Hasselbach is a nimble and lyrical flugelhornist, flutist, and trumpeter with mad skills. He has 15 albums under his name, 11 Smooth Jazz Billboard hits, a West Coast Music Award, plus the 2011 Canadian Smooth Jazz Album of the Year, and Instrumentalist of the Year Awards.

Back in 1976, Vancouver's premier Jazz Impresario Willi Germann presented the budding new group on the scene: GIBRALTAR.

GIBRALTAR featured a tenor-trumpet front line with Alex Michie and Mark Gabriel Hasselbach respectively, ace guitarist Russel Chan, hotshot drummer Daryl Miller, keyboard whiz Peter Dalzell, bassist Ken Williams, and a special vocal highlight from Joani Bye.

Gabriel Mark Hasselbach is an anomaly in the jazz world, an award-winning mad skills artist who walks a tightrope over the great jazz divide. He is a well-seasoned trumpet/flugelhorn player, who also performs and records on flute, vocals, and valve trombone. He’s a true jazzer at heart, nailing down the trifecta of Mainstream, Contemporary, and NOLA styles, all the while knocking on the clubhouse door of the oh-so-rare crossover giants such as Bob James, Chuck Loeb, Randy Brecker, George Benson, Marcus Miller, etc.
He has several straight-ahead albums that have impacted the JazzWeek charts, but is best known in the Smooth Jazz world with 14 critically acclaimed releasesnine Billboard hits,  Album of the Year Award,  Instrumentalist of the Year Award, several JUNO awards (Canadian equiv of a Grammy), and a plethora of other awards including West Coast Music Award and gold album awards.
Gabriel has two recent projects mining both ends of the spectrum and causing quite a stir.
Last April he debuted MidCentury Modern Vol 1 at the New Orleans Jazz Museum, at the 2018 New Orleans Jazz Festival. MCM Vol 1 is a straight ahead old school romp that features jazz titans such as Ernie Watts, Cory Weeds, and Miles Black, and seasons it with some NOLA style hotsauce.

On the other side of the coin, Gabriel recently released Radio Gold, which has already started up the Billboard chart arc with ‘Most Added’ status the first day it dropped. It is a 19 track retrospective of his best contemporary works, including his Billboard hits, plus a brand new radio single Way After 8. This track features the iconic Brit guitarist Ronny Jordan, and is Ronny’s last recording before and after his untimely death in 2014. Gabriel's soaring flugelhorn and Ronny's fluid guitar is a match made in heaven.

Gabriel is no stranger to the festival circuit and has a long history of festivals (Montreux, JVC, North Sea, Maui, Tokyo, San Pancho, Chandler Jazz, etc) and rocks a great show. He also goes deep into the straight-ahead jazz lexicon, too. Gabriel works out of Vancouver, Phoenix, and New Orleans, and has performed in a plethora of countries, and has even performed for Presidents, Royalty and Bill Gates.
He has recorded and/or performed with well-known names like George BensonBob James , Jeff LorberChuck Loeb, Brian Bromberg, Bob Mintzer, Warren Hill, Paul BrownJeremy MonteiroLarry Coryell, Marc Antoine, Bob Baldwin, and a host of others.
Gabriel’s recognizable sound and innate lyrical style are key components in his ability to create succinct and inviting jazz content, without dumbing it down, regardless of which side of the jazz fence it falls.

WAY AFTER 8 went for adds March 18, 2019, and made the ‘Most Added’ chart the first day out and we are hoping to make this his 10th Billboard hit!  Radio support: Neal Sapper   +1 (510) 260-0004   newworldjz@gmail.com

Gabriel was working on Way After 8 a few years back, before guitarist Ronny Jordan's untimely death. It took a while to get all the clearances, but here it is in all its glory, a testament to the magic of the Gabriel/Ronny combination! 

This is a George Benson /Ronny Jordan co-write, and it really lets the guitar sing and leaves plenty of room for Gabe's tasty and emotive flugelhorn and flute. 

If you aren't all that familiar with Ronny, you should be, as he was iconic and prolific, especially in the UK, and worked with many of today's greats like Marcus Miller. Check him out on Wiki.

What the critics say: http://gabrieljazz.com/reviews.htm

MidCentury Modern Vol. 1:

"I just had a chance to listen to Gabriel Mark Hasselbach’s album “MidCentury Modern” and was astonished by all the great playing and great production values. Whether playing on a swing or funk tune, his great tone and impeccable phrasing comes through every time, like liquid gold. My favourite tracks are Mississippi Jump and Terra Firma, where he and Ernie Watts swing their buns off, and UberSmooth where Gabriel shows off his ability to make hearts melt. Gabriel Mark Hasselbach has outdone himself on this album."

Jeremy Monteiro - Singapore-based International jazz pianist/composer/author and EFG Bank International Arts Ambassador

"Very nicely done, adroitly performed and produced. Truly a high-level project." Rick Scott  Great Scott P.R.oductions (unsolicited)

"Once again, Gabriel Mark Hasselbach has produced an album of fine jazz... he swings hard.... you can wrap yourself up in his music and feel warm and satisfied. It’s the fiery  Gabriel Mark Hasselbach, on trumpet, (sometimes flute), that brings this project to a boil. He keeps the music alive and swinging throughout. Hasselbach always manages to insert bold funk and lovely melodies into productions that make you want to dance, sing  and swing."

Wind Tunnel Records- The boutique jazz label, the home of Gabriel Mark Hasselbach

Gabriel's MidCentury Modern download page for NOLA radio programmers

MidCentury Modern is a winning trifecta -  the complete Gabriel - a seamless melding of straight ahead, contemporary, and NOLA styles. It is a trifecta of jazz where the sum is greater than the parts! This is a cohesive album nonetheless, with classic tunes featuring erudite and extensive soloing; beautiful ballads that coax out a hidden melancholy; and exuberant New Orleans flavors that get the party started.
