Van Morrison The Bang Records Sessions Limited Vinyl LP

Overview:
Van Morrison, known as Van the Man to his fans, was born August 31 in Northern Ireland. Van grew up listening to artists such as Jelly Roll Morton, Ray Charles, Lead Belly, and Solomon Burke. His father's record collection further exposed him to various musical genres, such as the blues of Muddy Waters; the gospel of Mahalia Jackson; the jazz of Charlie Parker; the folk music of Woody Guthrie; and country music of Hank Williams, all of which would subsequently leave trace elements in his own recordings. Indeed, often referred to as Celtic soul, much of Van Morrison's work draws from soul and R&B music, while another part of his output consists of lengthy, spiritually inspired musical journeys that expose Celtic roots and jazz.Still a teenager, Van started his professional career in music in the late 1950s, playing a variety of instruments including guitar, harmonica, keyboards and saxophone, in a range of Irish show bands, covering the popular tunes of the day before rising to international prominence in the mid-60s as the lead vocalist of the gritty R&B band Them. Them debuted in April 1964 when Morrison responded to an advert for bands to play at a new R&B club at the Maritime Hotel in Belfast. The debut of Morrison's Gloria took place on that very stage....
