o bardo irlandês da modernidade


Take me back
Take me way, way, way back
where we can feel the silence
at half past eleven on long summer nights
as the wireless played Radio Luxembourg.
Hyndford Street, St. Donald’s Church,
Sunday six bells.
And in between the silence there was
conversation and laughter and music
and shivers on the back of the neck.
And tuning in to Luxembourg late at night
and jazz and blues records during the day.
Also Debussy on the Third Program
early in the morning
when contemplation is best.
And reading  mr. Jelly Roll
and Big Bill Broonzy and Really the Blues
by Mezz Mezzrow 
and Dharma Bums by Jack Kerouac
over and over again.
Can you feel the silence?
And it’s always been night
And it’s always been NIGHT  

Leva-me  leva-me lá
Leva-me lá, lá, lá atrás
onde  se pode sentir o silêncio
às 11,30 em  noites estivais
Em sintonia Radio Luxembourg.
Rua Hyndford, S. Donaldo, sinos
de igrejas a repicar domingos.
E entre o silêncio ficava-se
à conversa e risada e ouvia-se
música com a nuca arrepiada.
Radio Luxembourg na calada
e  discos de jazz e blues de dia.
Também Debussy no 3 à alba,
     a melhor hora de  hora
de contemplação
E  ler o sr. Jelly Roll

 and Big Bill Broonzy e Really the Blues
de Mezz Mezzrow
e Dharma Bums de Kerouac
uma e outra e ainda outra vez.
Pode sentir o silêncio?
E tem sido sempre noite
E tem sido sempre NOITE

George Ivan . "Van" Morrison, born in 1945, at 125 Hyndford Street, Bloomfield, Belfast, Northern Ireland, filiado à igreja anglicana de St. Donald, de pai ateu e mãe protestante q se converteu às Testemunhas de Jeová, declarou que religão pode não querer dizer "nuts" (nozes nada), como muito bom irlandês viveu em Londres, afeiçou se como a mão a uma boa luva ao conhecêlos com Them, em 1966, na crista da onda da British Invasion, aos Estados Unidos da América, em muitos aspectos musicais herdeiros de suas (dele) raízes culturais e onde reforçou seus elos com aspectos básicos da cultura musical norte americana moderna, que vinha do berço como a cultura gaulesa de origem escocesa de pai e mãe: o pai trabalhou em Detroit e fez uma boa coleção de discos de jazz, blues e rhythm´n´blues. Sintomaticamente sua carreira solo deslancha em uma longa temporada q poderia equivaler a um exílio entre o estado de Nova York e a Califórina. Conseguiu manter saudável distância das questões politico religiosas q ensombram a Irlanda. Sua personalidade é tanto mais da paz q plantou também casa na República da Irlanda em, Dalkey near Dublin, terra desencantada de James Joyce, a mesma ilha, uma Irlanda. Hip notic soul porque diz q é um soul singer, faz soul music como também faz rhythm´n´blues, jazz,; música de bagpipe gaulesa.; Transita entre as fronteiras como um grande diplomata irlandês símbolo da Irlanda, divisão política fora de vista e barreiras do preconceito e alfandegárias, como transita pela música como grande poeta beat.

notas discográficas in

Astral Weeks described by AllMusic's William Ruhlmann as hypnotic, meditative, and as possessing a unique musical power. It has been compared to French Impressionism and mystical Celtic poetry

Hardnose the Highway  In a 1973 Rolling Stone review, it was described as: "psychologically complex, musically somewhat uneven and lyrically excellent."

Stephen Holden in his 1973 Rolling Stone review said: "Hard Nose the Highway is psychologically complex, musically somewhat uneven and lyrically excellent. Its surface pleasures are a little less than those of St. Dominic's Preview and a great deal less than those of Tupelo Honey, while its lyric depths are richer and more accessible than those of either predecessor. The major theme of Hard Nose is nostalgia, briefly but firmly counter-pointed by disillusion."

 Veedon Fleece now often considered to be one of Morrison's most impressive and poetic works.

Tupelo Honey muito old, old Woodstock, e ele diz ter querido fazer disco country´n´western e fez também country´n´blues, Veedon Fleece muito irlandês

"He's released many wonderful albums since, but he's never again hit the majestic heights of this one." "You Don't Pull No Punches, but You Don't Push the River", one of the album's side closers, exemplifies the long, hypnotic, cryptic Morrison with its references to visionary poet William Blake and to the seemingly Grail-like Veedon Fleece object

The following year, 1978 Morrison released Wavelength; it became at that time the fastest-selling album of his career and soon went gold. The title track became a modest hit, peaking at number forty-two. Making use of 1970s synthesisers, it mimics the sounds of the shortwave radio stations he listened to in his youth. The opening track, "Kingdom Hall" – the name given by Jehovah's Witnesses to their places of worship – evoked Morrison's childhood experiences of religion with his mother, and foretold the religious themes that were more evident on his next album, Into the Music.

Considered by AllMusic as "the definitive post-classic-era Morrison", Into the Music, was released in the last year of the 1970s. Songs on this album for the first time alluded to the healing power of music, which became an abiding interest of Morrison's

the most controversial album in his discography; later "Morrison admitted his original concept was even more esoteric than the final product." 1980 The album, Common One, consisted of six songs; the longest, Summertime in England, lasted fifteen and a half minutes and ended with the words,"Can you feel the silence?"NME magazine's Paul Du Noyer called the album "colossally smug and cosmically dull; an interminable, vacuous and drearily egotistical stab at spirituality: Into the muzak."
Jiddu Krishnamurti: "...there is no teacher, no pupil; there is no leader; there is no guru; there is no Master, no Saviour. You yourself are the teacher and the pupil; you are the Master; you are the guru; you are the leader; you are everything."

Can you feel the silence?
And it´s always been night
And it´s always been NIGHT


 Paul Williams: "Van Morrison's voice a fierce beacon in the darkness, the lighthouse at the end of the world. Resulting in one of the most perfect rock anthems known to humankind."
