Musical Disclosure by Perform School of music Episode 40

Oggi cominciamo la settimana dedicata una delle band più influenti della storia del rock progressivo, i Jethro Tull.

Welcome back to a new installment of Musical Disclosure. Today, we begin a week dedicated to one of the most influential bands in the history of progressive rock, Jethro Tull.


Ian Anderson, flautist, and singer, founded the band in 1967, initiating a career that would defy musical stereotypes. In the early years, Jethro Tull experimented with a blues rock sound, evident in their 1968 debut "This Was." However, the real turning point came with "Stand Up" in 1969, an album that introduced the distinctive fusion of folk, jazz, progressive rock, and even classical music. Anderson's virtuosity on the flute is a key element, shaping a unique and recognizable sound and a distinctive personality in live performances.

1971 saw the release of one of the band's most acclaimed records, "Aqualung," a masterpiece that explores social and humanitarian themes. The album contains some of their most iconic tracks, such as the title track and "Locomotive Breath." The decidedly prog vein of the band leads, just a year later, to "Thick as a Brick" (1972), an epic concept album presented as a long suite lasting over forty minutes.

In a decade of constant activity, where Jethro Tull released an album every year, from "A Passion Play" (1973) to "Too Old to Rock 'n' Roll: Too Young to Die!" (1976), the band explored unique sounds, instrumentation, and styles, with results not always appreciated by critics but certainly intriguing for enthusiasts and highly sought after on the musical and conceptual levels.


Today, we present the title track from the album 'Songs From The Woods,' a song that is less intricate than the standard mid-70s Jethro Tull fare but rather illustrative of the band's sound.
