About the event

Australia’s foremost jazz vocalist Vince Jones leads a celebration of one of rock music’s greatest performers in 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. Vince Jones was one of them. A remarkable interpreter, Vince Jones has invited a selection of the country’s finest jazz/rock musicians to form The Astral Orchestra, led by Music Director Matt McMahon, to join him in this homage to two of Van’s most acclaimed albums.

Effortlessly blending genres from jazz to Celtic-rock, Morrison is beloved the world over for enduring classics such as 'Gloria', 'Brown-Eyed Girl' and 'Have I Told You Lately'.

Vince Jones has set the benchmark for Australian jazz vocalists/musicians across a 20 album international career, and his Celtic/jazz/blues influence provide the perfect blend for this reading of two of contemporary music’s greatest works.
