URGENT CALL TO ACTION re: Honey LaRochelle

I'm at a Kickstarter concert for my  'niece' Honey LaRochelle. She grew up with my daughter and has gone on to a notable singing career. She has worked with Roberta Flack (she's her protege), Macy Gray, Brand New Heavies, Joss Stone, and has written for Jennifer Hudson among others.

She is now about to launch (with the help of Kickstarter and friends) her soulful project The Yes Feeling...

HOWEVER.... There is only 3 more days for her to reach her goal of $13000.00 or she does NOT get anything and the money is returned to the supporters. She has raised over $7K already but needs that last amount to get to the goal. Can you get on board TODAY?

Check out the details here and ACT NOW:

Don't be a stuck in the mud, do it now, friends!

Hi Fi Christmas downloads from Gabriel

Happy Holidays Friends!

Bill Reiter from WAGRadio sent me a little note, which was pretty nice, and I am shocked and amazed! It said: 
 "Congrats on your played-every-Christmas song 'Christmas Time Here' You've achieved something that every recording artist wants - a Christmastime hit ! ! ! "

Well, my Christmas album 'Gabriel's Holiday Notes' sold out this year, but I am still getting some requests... so, just in case you are trying to find it for your hearthside, or if you need some last minute radio programming, here are my eight favorites for you... these are newly remastered hi-fi free downloads ...  pick and choose at will... 

These tracks feature great talents like Kate Hammett-Vaughan, Miles Black, Tony Chamberlist, Miles Foxx Hill, Luis Giraldo, Eric Vaughn, Jimm Taylor, and they made ME play trumpet, flugel and flute, and 'channel' Satchmo  ;-)

Enjoy and have a Merry Christmas! 

You can stream (double click) or download  (right click) 

Plus a little bonus, the new single from Kissed By The Sun  Lock It Up hitting radio Jan 22!

Super review from LAJazz.com

Kissed by the Sun - Artist: Gabriel

Artist Gabriel brings trumpet mastery to his CD project, Kissed by the Sun. Here is a recording full of power, spunk and funk. Turn back the clock to the delicious horn lines of Tower of Power. If you loved that danceable momentum, you will certainly enjoy Gabriel's album. It's a nice blend of Smooth Jazz, mixed with R&B horn licks and a healthy dose of bebop. This trumpeter can play it all. Gabriel's CD crosses genres and employs the creative genius of keyboardist/songwriter/producer/engineer and arranger, Jeff Lorber. Lorber has written all songs on this project, along with co-writer/artist Gabriel Mark Hasselbach, except "Funk in Deep Freeze." This one was written by Hank Mobley, a saxophonist I came up listening to and one who jazz critic, Leonard Feather once called "the middle weight champion of the tenor sax". Mobley was iconic during the 'hard bop' era. It was great to hear one of his compositions reinvented.

Gabriel plays trumpet, flugelhorn, alto & C flute, trombone and evi on this album. Evi is an electric valve instrument that sounds like a saxophone being played through a heavy reverb system. It can also mimic other sounds and instruments, the same way a computerized synthesizer or electric piano does. Evi responds to air pressure and was created as a synthesizer for trumpeters.

My favorite tunes on this CD are "King James" with its catchy melody and staccato horn lines. "Lock It Up" is both harmonic and funky, but still proffers a beautiful melody. "Funk in Deep Freeze" features some great musicianship by featured artists, Chuck Loeb (guitar) and Brian Bromberg (bass). It starts out sounding like Smooth Jazz and branches quickly into great bop improvisation. I enjoyed the title tune and "Ready When You Are" a sexy showcase of Gabriel's smooth jazz trumpet talent. The final tune is powerful. "No One Like You" features Lorber on a spiraling-into-the-universe keyboard solo. Lorber also plays synthesized guitar and bass on this CD. Tony Moore on drums is the man holding the rhythm firmly in place on three of the songs I picked as favorites. This CD is the whole package! It flaunts well written songs and great musicianship wrapped up beautifully by an excellent, tightly woven production; a perfect gift for the holidays.
