4.0 out of 5 stars Duets 21 Aug 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is an odd entry in the Oregon catalogue. At no time do the whole group play together. Rather it is a collection of nine duets, combining instruments such as guitar and tabla, sitar and bass, piano and oboe, piano and bass etc. The tunes are excellent, and the matchless playing of these superb musicians work together at their usual high standard, but if you want to listen to Oregon you should start elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful duets-My Favorite early-period Oregon recording 24 Jan 2007
By Phasedin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Although it doesn't state it anywhere on the CD itself, this one is a bit different from all of the Oregon projects before or since.

This recording on the Vanguard label is from 1979 and has a very good recorded sound for the time. I would say this is my very favorite Oregon recording ("Winter Light" comes a close second), from the bands first decade, my favorite recording at least up until the time they recorded for the ECM lable in the mid 1980's.

Oregon has a large body of compositions, many of which have been recorded several times at intervals years apart, with slight changes in arrangement. However this recording has 9 pieces that I don't recall the band has recorded since, so there are no familiar well-known Oregon pieces here.

Don't let that stop you, though.

I don't know who's idea it was to record the musicians in various combinations, in a series of duets (some with overdubbing it seems), but this was a wonderful idea. Perhaps it was a desire to do something different from previous albums since the band was very busy recording during this period in their career.

Anyway, it works for me.

We get Ralph Towner on guitars and piano, Glen Moore on upright bass and piano, Colin Walcot on hand percussion and sitar, and Paul McCandless on various wind instruments including flutes. So there are lots of variations of instruments track to track, and the recording never gets boring or "samey" sounding.

It seems every combination of the 4 musicians in duet is covered here and there's not a single track that I don't like. That's quite an achievment for me, even from a group as talented as this.

If you're only going to get 2 recordings from the groups period from 1969-1983 (after which they went to record for the ECM label) I would not hesitate to pick up this one and "Winter Light".

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Sounding Disk 4 Aug 2009
By jomojomo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is just a review about the sound quality of the disk. I have the Polystar Jazz Library version from Japan released in 2004, which I believe is the one this review is placed with. The remastering here is good, but not great. The music is uniformly loud. The soft bits have really been goosed up. The dynamics are still decent, but there is a bit of over compression in parts that has lead to some distorting of the sound. But unlike the other mangled Oregon Japanese import that I bought, this one is still very acceptable in terms of SQ. I would say you probably should take your chances with the non-Japanese version though, as it's cheaper; and it's not like you're going to get something extraordinary if you buy this version.

4.0 out of 5 stars Timeless music 7 Jan 2008
By E. Minkovitch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The only reason I did not give 5 stars to this recording is that this is not a "group" recording. Those who love Oregon have come to expect tight group interplay and improvisation, and this album only offers duets, in various combinations of instruments and members.

This said, credit must be given where due, and plenty of it is due to the compositions, several of which are Oregon classics, and the high standard of musicianship as always. Towner and McCandless continue to amaze, as usual - their multi-instrument capabilities are legendary, particularly on this record, where Towner tackles the Hammond B-3 organ in addition to his sparkling 12 string guitar and breezy piano. Elevator is one of the best organ solos I've ever heard, in either fusion or rock, with tabla support from Walcott. The other highlight is a McCandless/Towner piece, Moon And Mind, with the most fantastic oboe solo flights I've ever heard from Mr McCandless, one of the best woodwind players alive.

So yes, it's a good way to spend those dollars.
5.0 out of 5 stars It's all here..... 29 Aug 2013
By Don G. Ovanni - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Wow, I hadn't heard this CD before but what a great addition to any Oregon library! This was recorded in 1979 but to my ears encompasses much of went on before in music from around 1969 and a preview of lay ahead for the group. There is the Dolphy-esque bass clarinet to the synth (organ) of RTF compositions. Plus a great Moore bass solo on Gloria's Step......a lot of good duo work. I agree with the other reviewer that this coupled with Winter Light would give a good consolidation of that period.
5.0 out of 5 stars a great gem by a wondetful group 14 July 2013
By Jerbear - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have a wide pallet of music I listen to and enjoy and Oregon draws from many different avenues of that pallet. They cross over into a wide range of forms of music more then most, they are a wondetful blend of jazz, classical and world forms and blend it into what can only be called Oregon. They are very much a one of a kind the only other group that comes close is the music of Paul Winter of which all four of these wondetful musicians came out of. These guys are not only great players but also are wondetful composers as well and then you have a master in the person of Ralph Towner I am so amazed at his lovely songs through the years and what a craftsmen he is on his instruments. I loved. this group from the first time I heard them and visit their music often more then most. This is a gem of an older release that somehow I missed. Oregon's music is hard to find the only place I saw some of their music was Barns & Noble and now they along with almost all of the jazz titles are gone. Your best bet is Amazon which has become my almost soul music store. What I like about the music of Oregon is there is a lot of depth to their music you can listen to it or you can read to it and it gives a beautiful back drop to your reading. On this subject I give thrsr guys credit for my good grades in college I always had music playing as I studied and it worked mostly A's and a few B's and in grad school I was a straight A student but than that was eady since it was my field of study. There is so much to love on this cd and even with this music being over 30 years old it is still very fresh and timeless music it doesn't sound dated at all. Explore the music of Oregon they are still together stronger than ever their lastest is incredible they are still exploring the boundaries of music if you are a lover of music and not locked into just one form of music you will love the journey into the music that these wonderful men make. Check out their other titles start with this one or any of their others I plan on getting every title I don't have in my personal collection.
