Vince Jones & The Astral Orchestra.
When The Beatles stopped touring and progressed to psychedelic rock and Dylan left folk and 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. Now, Jones, a remarkable jazz interpreter, has invited a selection of the countries finest jazz/rock musicians to form The Astral Orchestra lead by Music Director, Matt McMahon to join him in this homage to Van’s extraordinary repertoire; his most acclaimed album, the magical “Astral Weeks” – a poetic, mercurial blend of jazz, folk and blues - and most commercially successful, the wonderful soul/jazz influenced “Moondance”.
