New videos and Jazz Festival news from Gabriel

I'm at the Maui Jazz Fest for a Sept 10 show, and I have a great band to work with over there, including Paul Marchetti, Benny Uyetake, Dave Graber, and Brian Cuomo. Larry Coryell, Javon Jackson, Delfeayo Marsalis, and many more are also on the bill!

I finally got around to editing a couple of the many cool songs my band and I played at Frankie's in July. 
That show was a nice mix of smooth and classic tunes.... the only thing we couldn't fit in was some of my NOLA inspired material!

Hope you enjoy the videos!

Tempting Fate

A Night In Tunisia

Also, here is a new one for my latest single Charmed Life, which is just entering the charts as 'most added'.

An incredible sold out Enchanted Evening Concert

Sun Yat-Sen Chinese Classical Garden, in the heart of Vancouver's Chinatown, is a fantastic locale for a summer's eve concert!

The musicians included Tilden Webb on keys/bass and Nino Di Pasquale on drums. The entire concert was properly video recorded, but until it gets edited, here are some samples of what you saw or missed!
