Gabriel Mark Hasselbach & Band @ The TD Vancouver Jazz Festival

Gabriel Mark Hasselbach and his band rip through an exciting set at the 2017 TD Vancouver Jazz Festival, in a cool venue called Blue Martini. Performing with him are his longtime fav players: Miles Black (piano), Laurence Mollerup (bass), Phil Robertson (drums), and his 'since childhood' musical buddy Brian Monroney (guitar), who came all the way up from Seattle for this gig. The set included many of Gabriel's strongest live tunes, culled from his 14 albums, 10 Billboard hits, and 3 JazzWeek hits, plus his 2011 Canadian Smooth Jazz Awards  Album of the Year 'Told Ya So'.

Gabriel plays flugelhorn, flute, and trumpet on this set. You can find him at

This upcoming weekend and Remembrance Day video

This is one of those 'not sure if it is a long weekend' situations..... some people go out of town, some stay home and chill, and some venture forth and experience life. Always choose the latter!

I have been in the studio every day for several weeks, winding up my new cd Open Invitation, and squeezing in gigs as they come along.

Last night I had a real firecracker of a gig with John Nolan and Chris Sigerson at the Fairview Pub... man. we were smokin'!  We hit the bebop books real hard, something I don't get to do as often as I'd like. I am rather partial to the sweet and funky flavor of contemporary jazz, but I do walk the line!

The weather is uncertain these days, but come join me for a warm and inviting Saturday eve at my ongoing haunt Ten Ten Tapas, where we will have some fabulous guests including LJ Mounteney and Gunther Klaus. I am unveiling my new tunes as we go along...

Be there or be square @ 7 pm, and rezzies are recommended. It is always a blast.

Tuesday we all honor the fallen and those who served to protect our freedom. Remembrance Day is a day of somber reflection. You can be a Hawk or a Dove, but you still owe a debt of gratitude to those who put their lives on the line.

I created/edited my first full HD video to one of my songs, from my album Cool Down, called Come Back Home (Song For The Soldiers) and I would like to share it with you now:
