Matt Jorgensen, “Tattooed by Passion: Music inspired by the paintings of Dale Chisman”

Inspired by the paintings of his late father-in-law, the prominent abstract-impressionist artist Dale Chisman, drummer Matt Jorgensen has created a recording of all original works drawing influence directly from Chisman paintings, his home city of Denver, his life-long friends, and his constant reinvention as an artist. To properly reflect the power and expanse of Chisman’s pieces, Jorgensen, along with his longtime collaborators – trumpeter Thomas Marriott and saxophonist Mark Taylor – expands his own palette from previous recordings, exploring broad new textures and musical landscapes aided by Corey Christiansen’s earthy guitar work, bassist Dave Captein, and orchestrations for string quartet.
