O’s Notes: Smooth jazz trumpeter Gabriel Mark Hasselbach takes a stroll on the straight-ahead side with this blues-infused set, Mid-Century Modern, Vol 3. At this point, it’s safe to say that Mark plays good music in many genres! With Jason DeCouto on the B3, they lean towards cool blues notably on “Big Dipper”. Andy Weyl gets in the swing on “Nutville” and handles piano duty for 5 selections. We also enjoyed the Mark’s flute on “Slow Hot Wind” and the Latin vibe of “Senor Blues”. Hasselbach weaves crisp lead lines into the mix in another satisfying set of Modern Jazz.
