Van Morrison - What’s Wrong with this Picture?Belfast’s blue-eyed soul shouter has always swung effortlessly from rock and r&b to Celtic music and other styles. In the 1990s, he recorded two albums for the Verve jazz label. So it’s no surprise that Morrison’s now been scooped up by prestigious Blue Note Records. It’s a good move: on his label debut, featuring original blues and swing numbers like “Too Many Myths” and “Whinin’ Boy Moan,” along with covers of Lightnin’ Hopkins’ “Stop Drinking” and “Saint James Infirmary,” he sounds positively invigorated.
