Editors’ Notes Van has long insisted that he’s no rock singer—and this swinging set, released on the legendary Blue Note label, displays his peerless jazz and blues chops. Where many Morrison songs settle into meditative sways that clock in at nearly 10 minutes apiece, this largely upbeat collection sounds like Van has his knives sharpened and is eager to use them. The riveting pulse of “Stop Drinking” spurs him to let loose with blues shouts of old. Elsewhere, organist Richard Dunn adds a pure nightclub vibe.
