Van Morrison – Ballerina (1968)

Albums such as Van Morrison’s Astral Weeks (Expanded) defy categorization. Like Miles Davis’s “Kind of Blue,” or Joni Mitchell’s “Court and Spark,” it is a monumental creative work that belongs in any music collection. Nothing like it has ever been made before or since its release in 1968. The album’s tracks were improvised by jazz musicians, but it’s not jazz. It is a singular journey by musicians who didn’t even know one another when they entered the studio – and the result is a mystical, melancholy masterpiece. [Source]
