Van Morrison's Masterpieces - Astral Weeks & Moondance

Vince Jones & The Astral Orchestra

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

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

Vince 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.

Presented by HOTA, Home of the Arts, Vince Jones & The Astral Orchestra. A Beatroot Production.
