O’s Notes: Gabriel has a penchant for putting good beats together. Moving from the peaceful flute and sax on “Maui Rain” to the electronic beats and muted trumpet in the “Comfort Zone”, it is all easy to listen to or shake a leg on disc one! There are 35 of his best here on two discs including “Uber Smooth”, “Love System”, and “Underground Vibe”. And he plays some great covers as well: “Been Around The World”, “You Don’t Know What Love Is” and “I Love Paris” where he demonstrates his prowess on trumpet. The second disc contains more traditional jazz while the first has the contemporary groove locked up. Hasselbach is a versatile performer; make that, entertainer!
