Moving on Skiffle – Van Morrison
The prolific 77-year-old Morrison returns with his second double album in three years, with a solo album in between, his 43rd studio album overall. Moving on Skiffle includes skiffle-influenced covers of 23 blues, country, folk, gospel, and jazz songs. Skiffle combined folk, blues, country, bluegrass and jazz played with a mixture of homemade or improvised instruments (washboards, jugs, washtub bass, etc.). Morrison has previously explored the sounds of his youth in the mid-1950’s Belfast on his 2000 album The Skiffle Sessions: Live in Belfast with Lonnie Donegan and Chris Barber, a favorite of mine.
