As a long time Jethro Tull fan I looked forward very much to this release.Tull with a new twist i thought. I have to say though its slightly disappointing. The orchestrations dont go far enough,the arrangements dont really make use of the variety an orchestra can bring to bear. The whole thing suffers because its neither one thing nor another. Its not just Ian with orchestra he has a "Rock" band on stage with him too.If he was going to play as "Tull with orchestra" than Id rather have seen the Jethro Tull line up on stage rather than Ians "Solo" tour band. (Martin Barre is sadly missed).The whole thing just doesnt sit together,the drums and electric guitar dont fit at all,songs from the Tull Canon are not rearranged enough for orchestra. Id like to see Ian write music especially for orchestra and drop the "Rock" band for this sort of project and truly play with orchestra.An opportunity missed I think.

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.

Excellent DVD !!! It`s not a Jethro Tull DVD but it`s a excellent Ian Anderson DVD. Great songs and great, different arregenments. If you liked the original versions of Tull songs and aren`t ready to open up a little bit, this is not your DVD but if you are ready you`ll have a great 160 minutes journey of old and new loveable Tull songs in a different form.

Quite simply Ian Anderson is a genius, in my opinion one of the greatest showman (musically) of all time.

Orchestra fantastic, his backing band excellent, music brilliant.

Could go on but all I needc to say is AWESOME.
