Lalle Larsson: Posts about up-coming events.

Keyboard maestro Lalle Larsson has posted the following message to fans:

I feel really excited about the upcoming gigs with my trio.
We will play mostly new compositions but we will stick in some old ones too.
This music comes very much from the heart and I am so happy to be able to share it with you live.
It also feels extra special to finally play some gigs in Sweden, and for the first time in many years play a concert in my hometown.
So if you are in the mood for some electric jazz it would be great if you stopped by.
My new piano album "Until Never" will also be available at the gigs. (release date 25/4)

Tickets available:
Progressive Circus Festival - Salongen, Helsingborg, Sweden 26/4, 2014

Jethro Tull: Ian Anderson thinking of leaving Tull in the past.

Ian Anderson has described his work as Jethro Tull as "historical" and said he's quite happy to leave it that way.

And he's underlined the fact that he never liked the band name in the first place.

He's just released his second solo album, Homo Erraticus, which sees him using his Gerald Bostock character for the third time. It first appeared on 1972 Tull release Thick As A Brick, then returned on Anderson's_ Thick As A Brick 2_ in 2012.

He tells Billboard: "To me, Jethro Tull is the vast body of repertoire – the record catalogue, the music.

"If we look back on it, it kind of came more or less to an end during the last ten years or so, with a couple of live albums and a studio album of Christmas material. That might define the last albums under the name Jethro Tull.

"It's a body of work I rather think is now historical, since the weight of it lies back in the 70s and 80s. And I rather think it's nice to leave that as legacy."

He's well known for having disliked the Tull monicker. It was chosen at random by the band's agent as one of the many guises used to secure as many bookings as possible.

Anderson says: "If you'd asked me 20 years ago, did I regret anything about my musical career, my answer then, as it is today, has always been the name of the band.

"I can't help but feel more and more that I'm guilty of identity theft and I ought to go to prison for it. It's almost as if I watched old Jethro Tull at the cash machine, leaned over to check out his PIN, filched his card from his back pocket as he walked away then fleeced his bank account. It doesn't make me feel very good."

He adds: "I never paid much attention in history class so I didn't realise we've been named after a dead guy until a couple of weeks later."
