O’s Notes: Oregon is Paul McCandless (oboe, cl, English horn), Ralph Towner (g, keyboards), Glen Moore (b) and Mark Walker (d, perc). This is the latest in a successful stream of albums over the last 30+ years. They play syncopated rhythms that are as simple as the duet on “From A Dream” to the bouncy beats of “Catching Up”. There is always enough air around each of the musicians to allow us to enjoy each instrument and the band in total. The program includes enough variation with tempo and groupings to keep the listener engaged. Oregon plays jazz-fusion that is easy to digest. It is peaceful music but with all of the creativity and energy of any jazz set.
