Gabriel Mark Hasselbach – "Heading North" ft. Paul Brown – Windtunnel Records

“Heading North”, the second single from Gabriel Mark Hasselbach’s recent album Tongue & Groove, follows in the footsteps of his Billboard-charting track Chill@Will. It launches like a rocket on Mesa Bluemoon Recordings and features Gabriel’s recognizable and sassy flugelhorn, the honey-dripping guitar of Grammy winner Paul Brown, and a driving rhythm track from the multitalented Dan Seguin. “Heading North” looks to a kinder gentler place and the wide-open skies of the Land of a Thousand Lakes and takes the listener on a scenic and boisterous journey up North. This is a real post-covid road trip tune!


Gabriel Mark Hasselbach – Mid-Century Modern vol 3 – Windtunnel Records

MCMVol.3 follows in the footsteps of the prior two MCM volumes but takes a decidedly different turn into fiery organ combo territory, going head-to-head with the trumpet/organ sound of Joey DeFrancesco. Gabriel’s working combo features himself on trumpet, the fleet fingered Jason DeCouto on organ/bass, the snappy Nick Bracewell on drums, and the mellifluous John Lee on guitar. Gabriel starts with a dynamic deep-dive into a few smart originals and mid century gems, and then switches up personnel and adds his flute, flugelhorn, and ‘bone, for some underutilized but timeless classics.
