Van Morrison is a great example of timeless music. Invoking feelings of comfort and peace allows his music to transcend cultural contexts by focusing on what is inherently human. He uses a myriad of instruments, including saxophone, guitar, and trumpet to create a cozy, safe feeling on this 1970 treasure. Some of the tracks even drift into the swing category, namely “Moondance”, which sounds like it belongs in the sound system of a speakeasy.
