Born to Sing: No Plan B

Born to Sing: No Plan B

After five decades of making music, Van Morrison exudes an unhurried grace and easygoing elegance on his 35th studio recording, amid a tall stack of jazzy tunes. More to the point, Van and company sound like they’re having fun, even as he offers up some of the most socio-politically potent lyrics of his career, slipping Sartre quotes between lush, jazzy licks on “Goin’ Down to Monte Carlo” or laying down a swinging portrait of the battle between spirituality and materialism on “If in Money We Trust.”
