The next album released by Jethro Tull is not what one might think according to its title: “Roots to Branches,” (September 12, 1995.  One might think that the influences that led to Jethro Tull’s formation, the band itself, and then the various offshoots such as Blodwyn Pig, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Martin Barre would be here but oh, no- this is a NEW studio effort, the 19th to be precise.  The band featured Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), Steve Bailey and Dave Pegg (bass- Fairport Convention), Andy Giddings (keyboards), and Doane Perry (drums and percussion),  As usual, the band delivers a fine performance which is why we encourage everyone to seek this album out, give it a good listen, and then make it a part of your listening pleasure every day.

This is a cartoon caricature of me when I was working at a restaurant in Wasco, CA, my hometown. The up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist Simone did portraits of each of us here at the blog so I hope you like them as much as I, ahem, do. The important thing for us as foodservice business owners is that we protect our identities because in the age of the Cancel Culture, IF Marxist punks leads boycotts against us, it can destroy businesses that have been around for years, if not decades. Ah, well, I joined the Chefs de Cuisine of Greater Bakersfield, ACF, not long after it was chartered and am still a member even though the chapter is no longer in operation. I began working in foodservice in the late 1960’s, moved from Wasco, CA, to Monterey, CA, and then returned to my hometown in 2004. I have been a foodserver, a Mixologist, and am a Certified Cook. I am equally at home in both the kitchen and behind the bar (and on the floor, too). My passions are numerous, and my favorite is working in the bakery whenever I have had a chance. Bea O’Malley writes from her hometown of Wasco, California Bea O’Malley is a proud member of the Democratic Party.
