Gabriel Mark Hasselbach Quintet

Gabriel’s new album, “Open Invitation” builds on the successes of 2012’s tour de force, “Kissed by the Sun” and 2010’s Canadian Smooth Jazz Awards Album of the Year, “Told Ya So,” which yielded four Top Twenty Billboard hits. “Open Invitation” launches like a rocket with the power-packed first single PROPULSION, featuring the soaring piano of chart topper Greg Manning. Gabriel is ‘all systems go’ and ignites the fuse with his fiery trumpet and spacious flute.

Other guests joining Gabriel on OPEN INVITATION include Bob Baldwin (who featured Gabriel on his hits Seabreeze and Chameleon 3000), Cal Harris Jr (Shelter Island), Bob Mintzer (Yellowjackets), Rock Hendricks (Paul Hardcastle), etc.
