Oregon set lists .

    This is our attempt to create a database of all known Oregon set lists from recorded concerts ,since none seems to be available on the net. I have become extremely frustrated trying to compile Oregon setlists as,unlike many other groups , there has been no repository of sets available on the web .

So this small list is now here for all you Oregon collectors to use .Hopefully some of you will contribute your knowledge to build this base so it becomes more comprehensive.

This page is a tribute to Oregon, the fabulous jazz - world music -fusion quartet which has, over the past 30 years -featured Ralph Towner, Paul McCandless, Colin Walcott, Glen Moore ,Trilok Gurtu and Mark Walker.

Jazz fusion is not an adequate description of Oregons sublime music, which can vary from beautifully melodic pieces that are almost classical in form , to long dark, dangerous improvised numbers that defy classification.Other numbers have a distinctly Indian feel , where sitar and tablas mingle with jazz forms.This is why the Live Oregon experience is probably superior to their studio albums, as each concert is very different ,even if the same pieces are played each night .

If you can contribute towards updating this base , which is by no means complete- or 100% correct, or if you want to trade, please Contact us
