Not as much "Tull" material as I would have liked but the acoustic interpretations sounded great with a very talented band. Ian was in his usual "witty" form and it's hard to think of any aging rock star who has aged more gracefully. His "World Music" compositions were well received, but I have to believe the crowd was looking for more Tull classics. Still a great show well worth attending at the lovely Hanover Theatre in Worcester, MA!
Jethro Tull is usually found sharing the same delicatessen shelf as Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, The Who, The Rolling Stones and the other worthy stalwarts of the British “Rock Invasion” of the seventies.
But it is all too often forgotten that a large part of the Tull repertoire is, in fact, acoustic music, whether whole songs or sections of the blockbusters such as Thick As A Brick and Aqualung.
As the self-professed “unplugged guy with a bunch of noisy friends” Ian Anderson commands much respect as an acoustic musician amongst his peers. The only original member of Jethro Tull, Ian has remained synonymous with the brand identity.
Now, after 40 years of leading Tull to 52 countries spanning several continents, Ian Anderson brings his new acoustic tour to old and new friends alike.
With a band consisting of German guitar virtuoso Florian Opahle, pianist and accordionist John O’Hara, bassist David Goodier, and special guest violist Meena Bhasin, Ian will play Tull acoustic classics as well as other specially-rearranged Tull rock material and, in addition, some new material specially written for these tours.
Drawing on Folk, Classical, Rock and Jazz music styles, Ian blends elements of many world music cultures to delight his fans.
Throw away the ear-plugs, sit back, relax and savor Anderson’s musical smorgasbord.
