Jethro Tull in concert
16 July 2010
After celebrating in 2008 - 40 years from the release of This Was, the album with a harmonious balance of folk, jazz and classic music containing the gem Song for Jeffrey, Anderson and his companions are pushing on with their tour to celebrate a career that has spanned, in an ever convincing way, the last forty years of folk music history.
Astonishing albums such as the one mentioned above, the following Stand Up (in which the band borrow from Bach the Boure Suite for lute number 1 Aqualung (in a way the bands rock manifesto This as a Brick, Living in the Past, A Passion Play, Minstrel in the Gallery, the folk trilogy of Songs from the Wood, Heavy Horses and Stormwatch, but also the more recent ones Crest of a Knave and Catfish Rising (a CD album that enters into the Nineties with an abundance of renewed energy and determination) demonstrate that for Ian Anderson and his Jethro Trull art, experimentation and a passion are bound to overspill onto the stage and thrill the audience.. Further elements not to be overlooked in the bands albums are the cover graphics, which are just as important as the contents. Nowadays market demands have been transformed yet Anderson, his long-standing companions Martin Barre (guitar Doane Perry (drums) including the new additions of David Goodier (bass) and John OHara (keyboard are spreading a timeless music lesson that one can only learn from.
Relationships between the band and Italy have always been good, as is testimonied by the multitude of fans in our country and the fact that after 65 million records sold throughout the world and over 300 concerts in 40 different countries; Italy is always listed amongst the venues of each new tour of the band. A concert not to be missed.
