Van the Versatile Man - Don Black chats with Van Morrison about his varied musical tastes.

Van The Versatile Man - They may not seem the most likely pairing but they have recently collaborated on two new Van Morrison songs and between them they have an Oscar, 2 Tony Awards, 2 Grammys, countless Ivor Novellos and both have been inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Their work has had an enduring influence on generations of music makers, so who better than Van and Don to invite you to share their memories and favourites as they discuss The Great American Songbook, including the classics "Making Whoopee", "Everytime We Say Goodbye" and Cole Porter's "I Get A Kick Out Of You". They question why there isn't a Great British Songbook and wonder why the voice of the versatile Van can cover so many genres. So pull up a chair and enjoy the stories and musical memories from these two maestros.
