Artist: Morrison, Van
Description:
Audio Mixer: Enda Walsh. Liner Note Authors: Gavin Martin; Solly Lipsitz; Alan Licht. Born to Sing: No Plan B marks Van Morrison's 35th album and his return to Blue Note Records. Morrison released What's Wrong with This Picture? for Blue Note back in 2003. He re-signed to legendary jazz label in large part because musician and producer Don Was signed on to head it. Featuring ten new songs, Morrison plays guitar, alto saxophone, and occasional keyboards. Employing his trademark Celtic soul, the album also showcases incursions into jazz and blues -- and sometimes all three within the same tune. Morrison recorded the sessions in Belfast, and produced them. He used his road band augmented by guest musicians.

Editorial Reviews:
Rolling Stone (p.69) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The greater, constant lift is in the album's earthy-R&B roll..." Q (Magazine) (p.100) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he music is fabulous, a sublime pulse of Hammond organ, trombone and piano." Mojo (Publisher) (p.86) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] return to 'classic' form....This is a deeper subtler exploration." Paste (magazine) - "'Born To Sing' holds to the live, piano bar feel. Its horns and keys juggle Van's beautiful, indecipherable hollering."
