Astral Weeks é um dos meus álbuns favoritos da década de 1960.
O segundo disco de Van Morrison é uma mistura precisa de Folk com jazz, blues e umas pitadas de música erudita. Além dessa sonoridade fantástica e única, as letras são micro contos filosóficos, falando sobre a vida, morte, existência e reencarnação, só pra citar alguns temas.

Just finished a mammoth arrangement of Van Morrison’s ‘Beside You’ for #astralweeks at 50 this coming Monday. It will be incredible to hear @clarearco and the guys making it come alive. 1st though, up to Portstewart on Sunday to play alongside @arboristmusic, @kittphilippa & @ciaraoneillmusic for @ralphmcleanshow and his Sunday Brunch as part of the @atlanticsessions 🤘🏻😍🤘🏻
I love when music crosses #genre borders! Orphy Robinson weighs in - why Van Morrison's Astral Weeks is a secret jazz masterpiece: "It felt like Van Morrison could’ve recorded it yesterday, even though this year marks its 50th anniversary. When something is good, it works at any time. I was fascinated by the background of the musicians – jazz artists like the drummer Connie Kay, who came from the improvisational Modern Jazz Quartet – and I liked this idea of music coming from people you wouldn’t normally associate with that genre."
