Out of the Woods is a studio album by the American jazz group Oregon released in April 1978. The album peaked at number 17 on the Billboard Jazz Albums chart the same year. Yellow Bell" (Ralph Towner) – 7:02. Fall 77" (Glen Moore) – 4:26. Reprise" (Ralph Towner) – 1:02. Cane Fields" (Paul McCandless) – 4:35. Dance to the Morning Star" (Collin Walcott) – 5:36. Vision of a Dancer" (Ralph Towner) – 4:03. Story Telling" (Collin Walcott) – 1:03. Waterwheel" (Ralph Towner) – 6:26.

Oregon's music might be described as elegant folk melodies and "Third World" rhythms played by a jazz band with the precision and grace of a classical chamber ensemble. OUT OF THE WOODS was originally released in 1978, but it sounds like it came from a time all its own. "Witchi-Tai-To" (composed by the late Jim Pepper) has a captivating, dreamlike feel, and "Reprise" shows the respect they have for the blues. Once you take a stroll in these WOODS, you'll want to lose yourself in them.

Oregon is neither New Age nor world music, at least in the contemporary sense. To my ears, the group's more readily identifiable influences are the repertoire of the classical chamber ensemble, the collective improvisation of a traditional jazz quartet, and the rhythmic and tonal structure of the music of India. All four members are talented performers, each contributes compositionally, and the ensemble playing is often exquisite. On this album the melodically inventive McCandless plays oboe, English horn and bass clarinet (no saxophones or flutes), setting the tone throughout. I am also reminded of My Goal's Beyond, the wonderful 1970 album by John McLaughlin. I bought Out of the Woods when it was released on vinyl in 1978 but I didn't really give it a chance to sink in. It sat on the shelf, largely ignored, for about twenty years.

Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). Chris Offutt is an amazing writer! I read a lot of southern grit lit. Two of the best are William Gay and Larry Brown. Offutt ranks right up there with them. All of the stories are mesmerizing and extremely well written.
