Matt Jorgensen—Tattooed by Passion

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.

Chad McCullough & Michal Vanoucek—The Sky Cries

Seattle trumpeter Chad McCullough joins with Slovakian pianist Michal Vanoucek for an album of varied sonic landscapes and ever-changing moods. The Sky Cries follows up on concerts in The Hague (Michal's home for the last decade) and the Pacific Northwest, where together they molded their music into something distinctly their own—blending modern jazz ('Where The Sky Cries' and 'Blue In Breed') with European influences ('Time-lapse' and 'Krasna') and an openness that is decidedly Northwest ('Urban Grassland' and 'Soliloquy for D.G.'). They're joined by saxophonist Mark Taylor, Dave Captein on bass, and Matt Jorgensen on drums. Visit chadmccullough.com for more info.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
