We've heard the music of Ian Anderson and his group Jethro Tull on many occasions in these pages. This morning I'd like to introduce a recording of which many Tull fans may never have heard.
Back in 2017, Ian Anderson produced an album titled "Jethro Tull: The String Quartets".
He partnered with John O'Hara and the Carducci String Quartet to produce chamber music versions of many classic Tull tunes. I rather like it, and I hope you will too.
To start off, here's a medley of two very early Tull tunes: "Sossity: You're a Woman" (from the album "Benefit") and "Reasons for Waiting" (from the album "Stand Up").
Next, a medley of "Songs from the Wood" and "Heavy Horses".
And finally, no Tull project would be complete without some form of "Aqualung" - in this case, "Aquafugue".
The entire album is enjoyable, particularly if you like both classical and rock music.
