Editorial Reviews

"With Live at Yoshi's, Oregon discovered jamming. Many tracks on the album sound groovy and jazzy. And some even funky." -- JazzThing

Oregon, a band that has existed for more than three decades, is well known for crossing the borders of musical genres, combining stylistic means of jazz with those of classical and world music, and being open to both Indian music and folk with Celtic elements. Recorded in collaboration with successful producer Steve Rodby in August 2001 at Oakland's Yoshi's, one of the best-known jazz clubs in the US.

This release reads like a beautifully performed, beautifully recorded and beautifully received (by the audience, whose effects are felt) set from a typical Oregon concert. The fact that it is probably pieced-together from various nights is not important. What is important is the song selection. Missing are most of the "recent nuggets", like Claridade, Anthem, The Templars, etc. Only Green And Golden is left to carry that load. The "Distant Hills" and "Ravens Wood" are very nice, and function as the appropriate "old nuggets". The new composition by Glen is appropriately playful and slightly cracked (like Glen). The free piece and the set closing "Witchi Tai To" give it the appropriate stamp of Oregon. But the new Ralph pieces are a bit lightweight; Paul seems to working a little too hard to make them seem substantive, and the truth is that their melodies are not memorable in the way that Ralph's melodies usually are.
I applaud the group for not making the release one nugget after another, but a single disk with this content leaves you wishing there was a bit more. Perhaps a 2-disk set would have been the answer.
Anyway, Oregon fans will not be disappointed with what they hear on this disk, only perhaps disappointed with what they do not hear.

This is a nice album--well played, well recorded, easy to listen to. But the surviving members of Oregon will be the first to tell you that Colin Walcott was absolutely irreplaceable. Mark Walker is a fine drummer/percussionist, but Colin also played tabla, sitar, and about 3 dozen other instruments, some of which he created himself.
It's not fair to compare the current addition of Oregon with the original lineup, but when they're using the name Oregon, how can you not? I'm not suggesting that Ralph Towner, Glen Moore and Paul McCandless retire the Oregon name, but they should be aware that by performing as Oregon, longtime fans can't help but wonder how these new compositions might have sounded with the endlessly imaginative Colin Walcott's contributions.
For Oregon-starved fans eager to hear post-80s compositions from these very talented musicians, this album is most welcome, indeed. For those new to Oregon, I suggest you buy the entire Colin Walcott-era Oregon catalog first, and if you still want more, then and only then, buy this one.

This is just a quick note on the sound quality of this disk. It is very very good. The recording is clear, the mix is fantastic, and the mastering very professional. There is plenty of dynamics, although some compression has been used. Personally, I like a little compression as I find full dynamic music somewhat uncomfortable, especially the drum hits. A good 10-14 dB of dynamic range is my sweet spot, and that's what this disk has. Don't get me wrong, this is in no way a victim of the so called 'loudness war' (google it for more info), but if you insist on 100% dynamics you're not going to get it with this disk. Overall this sounds very good on good equipment (and on not so good equipment too, as I have this on my DAP as well).

Thanks Intuition for doing Oregon justice with your handling of this music.
