Van Morrison is considered one of the most prolific recording artists and extraordinary live performers of our time. He has received a multitude of awards and accolades including 6 Grammy Awards, a Brit Award, an OBE, an Ivor Novello, has been inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame & Songwriters Hall of Fame, and possesses honorary doctorates from Queen’s University Belfast and the University of Ulster, as well as entry into the French Ordres Des Artes Et Des Lettres, all illustrating the international reach of Van’s musical art. Van Morrison has collaborated with, among others, John Lee Hooker, Ray Charles, Lonnie Donegan, Mose Allison and Tom Jones. His visionary songwriting and mastery of many genres continues to shine on albums celebrating and re-exploring his blues, jazz, skiffle and country roots. With one of the most revered catalogues in music history, his talents as a composer, singer and performer are unmatched.
The breadth and reach of Van Morrison’s collaboration work continues in 2015 with the release of his new album ‘Duets: Re-working The Catalogue’ released on March 24th (UK March 16th). The project began in 2013 after Morrison played a show at London’s Royal Albert Hall with Bobby Womack, Mavis Staples, and Natalie Cole. The album was recorded in his home town of Belfast and London over the last year, using a variety of musicians and fresh arrangements. It features singers as influential and diverse as Gregory Porter, Chris Farlowe, and Michael Bublé. The album re-works songs handpicked from Morrison’s catalogue of over 360 tracks across his career.
