Overview

Although he has made his name in pop music, singer Van Morrison has long enjoyed jazz, particularly the singing and lyrics of Mose Allison (for whom he had previously organized a recorded tribute). This particular release finds Morrison teaming up with singer Georgie Fame (who also plays organ) and a top-notch group of mostly British jazzmen (tenorman Pee Wee Ellis is a ringer). The music is mostly blues- and jazz-oriented, with the highlights including "The New Symphony Sid," "Early in the Morning," "Sack O' Woe," "Centerpiece," a couple of Mose's better songs, and Morrison's hit "Moondance." A good introduction to Morrison's singing talents for jazz listeners not familiar with him, and a generally successful effort.
