VAN MORRISON & JOEY DEFRANCESCO YOU’RE DRIVING ME CRAZY (Vinyl) (2LP)
Van Morrison's 39th studio album You're Driving Me Crazy showcases electrifying musical collaborations, fresh interpretations of blues/jazz standards and deep cuts from Van's songbook. The new album is a collaboration with jazz Hammond organ/trumpet virtuoso, Joey DeFrancesco.
You're Driving Me Crazy follows on from 'Versatile' and 'Roll With the Punches' which were released in December and September 2017, respectively.
Like his last two albums, You're Driving Me Crazy includes reworked jazz and blues classics (Peter Chatman's "Every Day I Have the Blues", Eddie Jones' "The Things I Used to Do", Cole Porter's "Miss Otis Regrets") alongside tunes from throughout Morrison's discography ("The Way Young Lovers Do” from Van’s 1968's Astral Weeks, through the title-track to 2005's “Magic Time”).
