     Glen Moore

Real name: Glen R. Moore
Born: Oct 28, 1941 in Portland, OR
Genres: Jazz
Styles: Folk-Jazz, Post-Bop, New Age
Instruments: Piano, Bass

One of the longtime members of Oregon, Glen Moore's playing tends to be on the introspective side with thoughtful and melodic improvisations that are open to the influence of folk, classical, and ethnic music. He started on bass when he was 13 and freelanced in New York in the mid-'60s. Moore recorded with Nick Brignola in 1967, played part-time with the Paul Bley Synthesizer Show during 1969-1971, was with Paul Winter's Consort in 1970, and then left to help form Oregon. In addition to his work with the eclectic group, Glen Moore recorded with Annette Peacock, Larry Coryell, Ralph Towner, and Zbigniew Seifert, plus some non-jazz dates. He has also led dates for Enja, Elektra, and Audioquest, and performed duets with singer Nancy King (as King & Moore); the duo has recorded for Justice.

Glen Moore is a jazz bassist with early classical piano training. He began his musical career at age 14 with the Young Oregonians in Portland, Oregon.

Since 1988 Glen has worked with the Mountain Writers Center playing with many world renowned poets including Billy Collins, Galway Kinnell, Dorianne Laux, Linda Gregg, Anne Waldman, Marvin Bell, Joseph Stroud, and Yusef Komunyakaa.

Glen's most recent solo CDs are Nude Bass Ascending, featuring Steve Swallow, Carla Bley, Rabih Abou-Khalil, and Arto Tucboyaciyan, on the Intuition label, and King on the Road, featuring Nancy King and Rob Scheps, on the Cardas Audio label. Glen's band OREGON just completed its twenty-third album, entitled Oregon in Moscow.

Currently, Glen is at work on an album of his piano songs for Intuition and another Nancy King project for Cardas. He teaches music privately and lives with his son Alexander and wife Samantha, a horse trainer and lyricist, in North Plains, Oregon.
