Vince Jones performs Van Morrison’s masterpieces – Astral Weeks and Moondance

Australia’s foremost jazz vocalist Vince Jones leads a celebration of one of rock music’s greatest performers.

When The Beatles moved to psychedelic rock and Dylan went electric, Van Morrison hired New York’s finest jazz musicians and recorded two of the classic albums of that golden era – Astral Weeks and Moondance. Both albums had enormous impact on aspiring musicians and singers around the world. Vince Jones was one of them.

Effortlessly blending genres from jazz to Celtic-rock, Morrison is beloved the world over for enduring classics such as “Gloria”, “Brown-Eyed Girl” and “Have I Told You Lately”.

A remarkable interpreter, Vince Jones has invited a selection of the country’s finest jazz/rock musicians to form The Astral Orchestra, led by Music Director Matt McMahon, to join him in this homage to two of Van’s most acclaimed albums; the magical Astral Weeks – a poetic, mercurial blend of jazz, folk and blues – and the soul/jazz influenced Moondance.

Sold out concerts during the 2016 Melbourne International Jazz Festival at the Melbourne Recital Centre and, more recently, Sydney’s City Recital Hall confirmed the demand for Morrison’s repertoire and these iconic masterpieces.

Vince Jones has set the benchmark for Australian jazz vocalist/musicians across a 20 album, international career and his Celtic/jazz/blues influences provide the perfect blend for his reading of two of contemporary rock music’s greatest works.
