Biyografi

George Ivan Morrison (genellikle Van Morrison olarak bilinir), 31 Ağustos 1945 doğumlu, Grammy Ödülü ve İngiliz Şövalyelik Nişanı sahibi, şarkıcı, yazar, şair, müzisyen ve şarkı yazarı. 1950’lerin sonundan beri profesyonel olarak müzikle ilgilenmektedir. Gitar, mızıka, klavye, davul ve saksafonun içinde bulunduğu pek çok enstrümanı çalabilir. Sesindeki karakteristik hırıltı sebebiyle -folk, blues, caz, kelt ve soul türlerinin bir karışımı gibidir- rock’n roll tarihinin en farklı ve etkileyici vokalistlerinden biri kabul edilir. Eleştirmen Greil Marcus daha da ileri giderek şöyle dedi: «Hiçbir beyaz adam Van Morrison gibi şarkı söyleyemez.»

Hayranları tarafından «Van The Man» olarak anılan Morrison, ilk çıkışını bir Kuzey İrlanda grubu olan Them’in solisti olarak yaptı. 1964’te hit olan parçaları «Gloria«‘nın kazandığı başarının birkaç sene sonrasında grubu terk eden Morrison, o günden beri solo kariyerine devam ediyor.

Morrison, nev’i şahsına münhasır bir müzikal yol izledi. Müziği çoğunlukla Amerikan soul müziği ve R&B çevresinde şekillendi. Popüler single’ları «Brown Eyed Girl», «Moondance», «Into the Mystic», «Domino» ve «Wild Night«‘ta bu şekillenme net bir şekilde görülebilir. Müziğinde en az bu yapılanma kadar fark edilen, kelt ve caz müziğiyle donatılmış ve anlatımında bilinç akışına rastlanan upuzun, gevşek olarak birbirine bağlanmış, ruhen ilham verici müzikal seyahatlerdir. Klasikleşmiş albümü «Astral Weeks» ve «Veedon Fleece», «Common One» gibi daha az bilinen albümleri bu etkinin örnekleri olarak gösterilebilir. Bu iki tarza birlikte «Kelt Soul» dendi.

    Not that anyone cares, but Tupelo Honey and Veedon Fleece are my favorites.

    If you like his early 80s albums, especially Beautiful Vision, his "Live at the grand opera house in Belfast" from 1984 is a must.

    I'm starting to think that Veedon Fleece is his best album.

    The song Ancient Highway is one of the highlights of his career, I think. :)

    Check out the latest issue of Uncut for a very nice text about Veedon Fleece. :)

    Hm. Interesting point. I don't know when I'll get to hear the whole thing, but someday we'll discuss it further.

    I think it breaks the spell of the album a LITTLE, I mean his stuff is so archaic and transcendental that just taking the journey there to 1969 to A&R Studios and hearing him go through these songs one by one with those involved making comments inbetween just destroys its magic, but maybe that's just me. I understand releasing box sets like that in the case of for example The Beach Boys where you can experience how they worked their cohesive harmonies into their multi-layered songs but in the case Van, it doesn't do much to hear 11 Caravans. Some of those outtakes are real shiners nonetheless.

    I've only heard the samples on Rolling Stone's website but they were goooood. And you're certainly right that such a thing isn't "necessary" - but for the obsessives, or for fellow musicmakers like I hope to be, an entire session becoming available like that is an unbelievably cool thing.

    Well the Moondance remaster sure sounds like a million dollars, some of the outtakes are pretty lovely too, although I question the necessity of such a box set... Apparently Van wasn't happy either, he never granted permission for such a release!

    Van is certainly an artist who just keeps carrying on, but I'd cite him as a rare example of someone who can get away with it. A record like Days Like This, thirty years into the man's career, breaks no new ground whatsoever, for music or for Van, and yet it's terrific.

    I don't agree with you on that point.

    Van Morrison is a case of an artist who keeps going doing his thing. Pity most of it has been uninteresting for the last 30 years or so. Sometimes just carrying on is the worse thing an artist can do.

    I recently had the honor of recording Van's Brand New Day with producer Gary Katz of Steely Dan renown. If you get a chance please check it out and let me know what you think. http://youtu.be/8wN00ImO8Yk

    I've been lucky enough due to my age to have been listening to Van M since his days with Them. It's practically impossible to put in order his best songs or albums. He has always been, as Neil Young has, dedicated to communicating his feelings as they occur and in different styles. Astral Weeks and Too Long for Exile would be my first two favorites but it's impossible not to appreciate the ground-breaking influence Moondance had, although Moondance tends to be over played. The performance with the Band on The Last Waltz is up there, as is too many other albums to mention. The best idea: get his entire library, lay back for the weekend it will take to listen to it all, and note the numbers that move you the most. Knowing his favorite bluesman was John Lee Hooker, I would recommend his Too Long In Exile album to the novice. His voice and lyrics are pretty much unparalleled. We are fortunate that he's still producing great works.

    Nice choices! Hmm, yeah, Astral weeks is obvious for the 60s. Though, I like Them, they are not close to Astral Weeks. Veedon Fleece for the 70s. It is also clear for me, with Saint dominic's Preview on second place and Moondance and Into the Music close behind. The 80s is tougher, but for me it is between Common one and No Guru. It is very hard because both are among my favourites of his, but I might choose No Guru in the end. I would say Hymns to the silence for the 90s with The Healing Game and Enlightenment behind. The 00s is pretty easy for me, I'd say Magic Times. :) And he has only released one album this decade, so far.

    I haven't been thorough enough with the '90s yet, nor reached the '00s, but it's the back-to-back of Into the Music and Common One for me, with Saint Dominic's Preview and Beautiful Vision right behind in their respective decades. Astral Weeks for the '60s, of course; I've never gotten too into Them, but I doubt many would put one of those two records, or the meant-to-be-singles Bang Sessions stuff, over Astral Weeks. How about you, lrryco?

    Just throwing a question to whoever feel up for it. Hopefully at least one or two would! ;) Which is his best album from each decade, would you say? If you haven't heard any albums from certain decades just ignore those, then. :)

    Astral Weeks brims with invention, lyricism and wistfulness. One of the few rock albums repeatedly hailed as the best which 100% deserves that status.
