Van Morrison and Chris Farlowe perform mellow and lovely ‘Transformation’ at Jools Holland’s ‘Later 25’

Watch Van Morrison and Chris Farlowe perform mellow and lovely ‘Transformation‘ at Jools Holland’s 25th anniversary show

Jools Holland celebrated 25 years of his music TV show with a concert at the Royal Albert Hall on Thursday that featured some of the most iconic musicians, including Foo Fighters, Van Morrison, Paul Weller, Jorja Smith, KT Tunstall and Gregory Porter.

One of my favorites of the evening though was Van Morrison collaborating with blues and soul singer Chris Farlowe and performing a gorgeous version of Morrison’s own ‘Transformation‘.

The track is the lead single from Van Morrison’s latest album Roll With The Punches, just released on Friday. And it’s classic Van Morrison with rich, sweet, soul vocals and a mellow gospel groove.

You can buy Morrison’s latest album Roll With The Punches here. It is his 37th album, which is a massive accomplishment in itself. The album features five new Morrison songs, plus covers of some really wonderful blues and soul tracks.

Watch Van Morrison and Chris Farlowe perform ‘Transformation‘ on Jools Holland’s ‘Later 25‘ live at the Royal Albert Hall. Now that’s a cool sound.
