Though they have so many albums to choose from, only present strings and flute here (and a little of Anderson’s croaking along the way) and certainly handling classic rock tunes quite unlike we have ever heard them (though Anderson has employed strings live and on record on Tull music aplenty) The Carducci Quartet & Ian Anderson still manage to deliver something special with Jethro Tull-The String Quartets.

If you don’t know the name, Kenny Aronoff, you are sure to know this drummer extraordinaire from seeing him sit behind John Mellencamp’s band for years (he created and played the iconic drum break in “Jack & Diane” as just one example of his work with J.M), as well as from seeing him on tour with The Smashing Pumpkins, Melissa Etheridge, and John Fogerty.

We had met this soft-spoken gentleman last time and he was amiable and sweet this year as last…and very damn helpful indeed.
