“Vince Jones is a deeply musical interpreter with a breathy, silken-voiced approach to Van Morrison’s repertoire; standout moments included his slow, emotional jazz version of Madam George and hearing his superb signature phrasing on songs such as Slim Slow Slider. The softly-spoken Jones introduced most of the songs by talking about their meaning to his own life…adding to the intimate nostalgic but not indulgent feel of the night.” Australian Stage
