Oregon jazz band from USA, created a very unique album in my opinion with a lots of unusual instruments for this kind of music, like Sitar, Tabla, Flugelhorn and Oboe and give a new dimension to the jazz music. Of course there are traditional instruments like giutar or bass, but without drums, only persussions

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.

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.
