Road Songs (2016) is a collection of cinematic jazz compositions inspired by several years of touring in the music industry. It is Dave Jorgensen’s first release as a band leader. Assembled by jotting down melodic fragments that appeared in his head and later fleshing out the best ones into songs, the selections on Road Songs reflect Dave’s ongoing internal conflict between a love of Free Jazz and an affinity for 1980’s Easy Listening music.
