O’s Notes: Canadian smooth jazz sensation Gabriel Mark Hasselbach brings us some heat to close out 2019. We enjoyed the first volume of“MidCentury Modern“(79) and“Volume 2“is equally good as Gabriel continues to dance with straight ahead jazz. The trumpeter surrounds himself with featured guests Miles Black (keyboards), Ernie Watts (sax) and Cory Weeds (sax). Black tickles the ivory on ‘Chick’s Tune‘ before they get a little funky on the radio mix of ‘Super Blue‘. We also enjoyed ‘Mamacita‘ and ‘Nature Boy‘.
