Jethro Tull – The Rock Opera Performed by Ian Anderson
- Jethro Tull is: the eccentric British prog-rock band led by singer/songwriter/flautist Ian Anderson. It rose to multi-platinum stardom in the 1970s with concept albums such as Aqualung, Thick as a Brick, and A Passion Play. In 1988, the band also won the Grammy for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance (beating out Metallica), despite being neither metal nor particularly hard. In response, Anderson reportedly quipped, “Well, we do sometimes play our mandolins very loudly.”
- But the real Jethro Tull was: neither a Grammy-winner nor a flautist, but an 18th century agricultural pioneer who invented farming tools such as a horse-drawn seed drill and hoe—both of which made the British Agricultural Revolution possible and helped provide the foundation for modern farming techniques.
- The Jethro Tull rock opera is: Ian Anderson’s high-concept musical, which uses clever visuals and greatest hits from the Tull repertoire (plus a slew of new songs) to tell the story of the real Jethro Tull.
- The operatic embellishments: The story is transplanted from the late 1600s to the near future (because nobody had “Locomotive Breath” in the 17th century), where Mr. Tull is a biochemist working to feed a starving planet. The narrative drive is also aided by projection screens featuring the events of Tull’s life.
- The hits: Expect favorites such as “Heavy Horses,” “Aqualung,” and “A New Day Yesterday” delivered with power, flute solos, and a few lyrical changes to aid the story.
