Review: acoustic fusion jazz. While there are certain touchstones common to many Oregon recordings here, and certain methodologies that have come to define its sound and approach to harmony and melody, Lantern makes clear that, forty-seven years on, and with its two remaining co-founders well into their senior years, Oregon remains as effortlessly surprising and holistically inimitable as it's ever been.
