Jethro Tull live guest violinist Anna Phoebe is to release a new album, featuring Ian Anderson
"Weaving Anna’s violin with the diverse musical and cultural backgrounds of the band members as well as the inspiration drawn from her extensive travels, Between The Shadow & The Soul (to be released in April 2014), is an exotic collaboration of classical and Eastern influences with a unique rock edge. Ian Anderson, a featured guest on the album, describes it as, “Soaring elegantly aloft with Eastern and Western-influenced melodies to conjure all things mysterious for the lifting of all souls…intelligent improvisation and sweeping, emotional cadences and sonic qualities…”
Ian puts it better but bloody 'ell she's got some talent and passion when she brandishes that violin.
Just when I thought all was well in the world....third brick show coming...new album and tour next year,,,comes the Ian pose photo of Anna proving the malignant disorder of the universe....how is she not married to me?
Anna's new audio clip sounds terrific. A brain tonic. A musical rehabilitation clinic on MP3 Boulevard.
Another legend to add the Tull story. Of all the "guests" who've performed with IA and the chaps, Anna's probably the most at home with the music and has added to the creativity on stage. Great person to talk to as well - missed your chance there Bernie.

Old Webby has been supplementing his meagre civil service pension with journalistic duties at R2 Magazine and he sent me the following from the latest edition for possible inclusion on The Forum. I said we'd consider it at the next editorial meeting but when he offered money, well we couldn't resist.
Paragraph one, line three: TSO BEFORE Jethro Tull...what the hell, Webby ? I forgave him splitting the Interview books in two on Kindle,...they are worth far more than even double the cost...but TSO befo Tull? Ladies and gentleman of the jusry ?
futureshock: Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Marnie Kringles, Reindeer Kibble, peace of heart and generosity of hand, in this season.

maddogfagin: Sure are - the Cornish sub species (originally shipwrecked off Land's End whilst on transit to Aberdeen and escaped to shore) are devilish little blighters at the best of times.

futureshock: The secret language of birds: millions of yrs old. Just 18+ yrs ago, someone tackled that idea and radiated music back on the topic. That's why it's one of the best reviewed solo albums out there! Chirp that in your blender and take it to the riverside.
