When} Collin alcott was

illed three yearsago

was thought to be the end of Oregon, the very successful four-piece group that he had co-founded in 1970. They had perfected an eclectic style of essentially acoustic jazz fusion, using eastern and western instruments with a range of percussion but no drum kit. and combined with superb musical skill. With new percussionist Trilok Gurtu, who worked with and was a friend of Walcott‘s, Oregon has evolved further down its razor’s edge path between New Age meanderings and rhythmic cross improvisations. Oregon (see photo) play the

Citizens‘ Theatre, Glasgow on the 30th with Ralph Towner using more keyboard synthesiser than his

usual immaculate guitar; Paul McCandless on oboe, bass, clarinet, English horn and soprano sax; and Glen Moore on piano, bass andllute.
