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 ?
steelmonkey: Thank You for interview and interview sharing. Very Cool.

nonrabbit: Hello Futureshock! Great to hear from you. Hope you're staying healthy too....a metre apart from any other human (animal?) that tries to cross you path. I'm a librarian in a public library and we've asking people to make a diary of their experiences.....

chester: Do any of you [my fellow JT Forum members] miss watching live sporting events on TV, because of the virus, as much as I do?

steelmonkey: I miss reading about the Golden State Warriors and St Pauli in the second Bundesliga. I keep an eye on the baseball 'A's and the Brazil team, Botoafogo. My EPL Team is Tot Spurs and I take the time to hate two teams :HSV in Germany and Man United.

maddogfagin: Miss the sport on tv especially the football and now that summer is upon us the cricket. I fear that things will take a year or two to get back to how it was before all this shenanigans.

steelmonkey: I miss some watching and reading about sports but not enough to suddenly get interested in the Belarus Football League or Taiwanese baseball. Fans are going pretty far for a fix.

chester: I don't watch very much BUNDESLIGA, but it has returned after two months, with NO FANS allowed in the stadiums. I am starting to follow UFC mixed martial arts, which has returned as well.

tullmatrix: Is there some way to still get the Passion Play complete midi? I pasted the link into my browser and got a message that i was forbidden.

botanicman: Chester, The Plague has made me realize how little I actually do care about sports. I might not spend the time to watch when they do return!

pbinlostangeles: For us in So Cal, first time since 1974 no Long Beach Grand Prix and - apparently - no Indy 500. At least not on Memorial Day. Hopefully, they'll get this virus crud figured out before the start of MotoGP season

chester: NASCAR has restarted it's 2020 season but, like German soccer, to empty grandstands. I think catching a virus is low on the list of dangers that can befall a racing car driver.

chester: I know that I am late to the idea, but I have started wearing a mask while out in public. My Canadian officials have changed their stance from: not recommended to mildly suggested to strongly advised.
