Drummer Matt Jorgensen is in Denver this week for the opening of Dale Chisman In Retrospect an exhibition of paintings by the noted Denver abstractionist. Jorgensen’s recent recording, Tattooed by Passion, is based on the paintings of Chisman, who is his wife’s late-father.

The show starts this Thursday, with an opening reception at 6:00pm and runs through February 27 at RedLine (2350 Arapahoe Street, Denver).

Jorgensen will be interviewed on KUVO 89.3fm radio Wednesday afternoon (1:20pm Denver time, 12:20pm Seattle time) talking about his recent recording and the opening at RedLine. (You should be able to listen to the interview online on KUVO’s website).

This past week has also seen a surge in airplay of Jorgensen’s Tattooed by Passion CD. It currently sits at #30 on the JazzWeek Radio Chart, up from #70 last week.
