There was a request for Oregon, following the Larry Coryell post, so here they are.
Oregon have an original sound, totally their own. The band evolved from the Paul Winter Consort and in particular, "Icarus" and the live album, "Road". Soon after leaving Winter, the core members formed Oregon, which still plays today, with a few forced personnel changes.
This album features all original members:
Ralph Towner - guitars, piano
Colin Walcott - percussion
Glen Moore - bass
Paul McCandless - wind
They are more of an ensemble than a group with a soloist, they perform very much as one. Towner, as you can here on the sample and the Coryell album, adds colour and rhythm on 6 and twelve string guitars, solos are sparse and often finish before you realize they have started, Walcott seems to have in infinite range ot rhythms, Moore just has a beautiful tone, whilst McCandless is ever inventive and as he does not play the usual jazz instruments, his sound is totally orignal. The whole sound is more important than individual musicians.
