EDITORS’ NOTES

With his soulful, supple delivery and knack for improvisation, Van Morrison has had a way with jazzy tunes since 1968's Astral Weeks. Five decades along, Versatile finds him focusing exclusively on jazz. The album is dominated by Van's versions of jazz-pop standards, and the Celtic crooner brings both a seamless swing and a master jazzman's melodic twists and turns to the dreamy "Let's Get Lost" and the wistful "They Can't Take That Away from Me.” Morrison also tosses in a few originals that stand up admirably alongside their classic neighbors.

Work Ethic

No matter what you thing of VM, he loves music and doesn't care if people buy it or not. I wish more established artists put out music on a regular basis. Such a great artist.

Wrong category

This belongs in Jazz or Blues. Where did they get the Rock category from? Great album. The classic Van Morrison at his best.
