Short description:  Local legends, singer-songwriter Gary Ogan and first-call jazz bassist Dave Captein, welcome former Portlander, Casey James, known for a long career writing hits for artists like Elton John (Are you Ready for Love, Mama Can't Buy You Love), Jennifer Lopez, and the Temptations.

Longtime Portlander, 70's Elektra recording artist, and 2008 Oregon Music Hall of Fame inductee Gary Ogan continues his bi-monthly series of shows at O'Connor's Vault, this time backed by Dave Captein, one of the most in-demand jazz bassists in Portland, and with special guest, Seattle's Grammy-nominated, award-winning, songwriter/composer and former Portlander, Casey James, known for a long career writing hits for artists like Elton John (Are you Ready for Love, Mama Can't Buy You Love), Jennifer Lopez and the Temptations. (To all American Idol fans, this is not the American Idol Casey James.)

"We had a lot of fun in high school," Ogan recalls. "Lots of musical growth, and the first inroads into the realms of becoming songwriters and collaborators were taken during those years. It was great, we were fearless, and we had a good run before getting on with our respective lives. This will be the first time we've seen each other in 17 years, and we're both excited about this reunion. I'm very glad it's happening."

"Gary Ogan is a soul man - reminds me of Donald Fagen. His arrangements are distinctive and passionate, and he plays every instrument on the record which reminds me of the solo records by Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney. This man needs to be heard." - Brian Ahern  - Producer - Emmylou Harris, George Jones

" . . . as an artist, you row your own boat in a way that is pleasing and rewarding to the soul. I think you're a great artist and a quality record maker." - Leon Russell

" . . . This is evocatively grand material performed on a large scale." ***1/2 - Russell Hill - Maverick Magazine

As Gary puts it, "What Matt and I are doing is providing me a way to get back into playing for my local fans again. From my first major label single released in 1972, Portland Rain, to songs from my forthcoming solo project due later this year, I'll be dusting off the old and preparing the new to share with you all."
