The band was an outgrowth of the Paul Winter Consort of the 60s.

    I have such fond memories of seeing Oregon TWICE at the Erikson Kiva while attending Michigan State University. Their live performances were pure magic! I always associate the title track of this album to the loss of Collin Walcott and his "Crossing" to another place...

    I am so thankful I found out about this band. They are simply stunning, beautifully creative. Oregon makes great background music for weekend study sessions, bouts of creative production... or just about anything. They're helping me manage my stress quite well. Jazz + oboe = brilliant.
