VINCE JONES & THE ASTRAL ORCHESTRA:
Van Morrison’s Masterpieces
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 – Australian jazz legend Vince Jones was one of them.
A remarkable interpreter, Vince Jones has invited a selection of the country’s finest jazz and rock musicians to form the Astral Orchestra, led by Music Director, Matt McMahon. Vince Jones and the Astral Orchestra will pay homage to Van Morrison’ extraordinary repertoire, highlighting two of Van Morrison’s most acclaimed albums: Astral Weeks — a poetic, mercurial blend of jazz, folk and blues — and his most successful album, the wonderful soul/jazz influenced Moondance.
Vince Jones will put his unique spin on Morrison’s iconic songs, including ‘Crazy Love’, ‘Sweet Thing’, ‘Into The Mystic’, ‘Madame George’, ‘Brand New Day’ and of course, ‘Moondance’.
Vince has set the benchmark for Australian jazz vocalists and musicians across a 20 album international career. His influence by the Celtic, jazz and blues genres provides the perfect blend for his interpretation of two of contemporary rock music’s greatest works.
For this special Valentine’s Day concert, the ticket price includes a complimentary glass of sparkling wine.
