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

Charmed Life Moves Up the Billboard Charts to #24....

Well, I am getting some action it seems! It can be a slow arc, but also can be long lasting exposure...

My tune Charmed Life from 'Open Invitation' finally cracked the Billboard charts, debuting at #28, and is now at #24.

A lot of credit goes to co-composer and producer Lew Laing Jr., who helped make this tune a hit, with his hip production skills and in-the-pocket playing. Bob Baldwin delivers a concise yet playful solo...

We are off and running, this will be my seventh Billboard hit, following Rockin' The Ribjoint, Starpixie, Lock It Up, Ready When You Are, Propulsion, and a two top fives as featured artist on Bob Baldwin's Seabreeze and Chameleon 3000....

Check out the reviews from the likes of Randy Brecker and more!

Here is the new interactive video for Charmed Life!
