Ian Anderson himself

Ian Anderson, the man with the flute whose influence on rock music cannot be fathomed, comes your way with an ambitious solo project. Together with the New Philharmonic Orchestra of Frankfurt and a phantastic band, he reinvents the music of ... Full DescriptionJethro Tull. Extras include Anderson interview, interview with concert agent Fritz Rau, and interview with participants.

Though they began their career as a Led Zeppelin-influenced blues-rock band, Britain's Jethro Tull eventually embraced a courtly, near-Elizabethan sound led by the delicate flute stylings of chief songwriter, Ian Anderson. It therefore seems natural for Anderson to fully insert the "classic" into classic rock with symphonic arrangements of Jethro Tull songs performed in concert with Frankfurt, Germany's New Philharmonic Orchestra. Together, the flutist and orchestra breathe new life into the tricky time changes and long suites of Tull classics like "Calliandra Shade," "Griminelli's Lament," "Locomotive Breath," and, of course, "Aqualung."
