4.0 out of 5 stars Plays the Orchestral Jethro Tull: Ian Anderson - Living in the past maybe, but Anderson is still in the grip of stronger stuff, 6 April 2011

This review is from: Plays Jethro Tull (Audio CD)
Usually when an artist starts going back over old work and fiddling about with it, it is a sign that they have started to run out of ideas. Not so with this effort from Ian Anderson!

The Jethro Tull frontman/ creative driving force takes a set of tracks from Tull's back catalogue and a few of his more recent solo offerings and performs them live with the accompaniment of a full orchestra. The orchestra gives him a wide palette from which to draw, much wider than the traditional 4 piece band format. Using the rich colours and textures available, he recreates some of the tracks into more interesting and complex pieces. He is up front on the stage with trademark flute and vocals, there is a genuine interacton between him, the orchestra and the audience. It's an album well worth having for any Tull fan. Especially because as well as playing it safe with well known tracks a few lesser known Tull gems, such as `Up the Pool' are also given a welcome airing.
