Ian Anderson assembled a light orchestra and went on the road performing orchestral renditions of Jethro Tull favorites.  “Ian Anderson plays the Orchestral Jethro Tull” came out on June 06, 2005 and besides the eclectic Anderson (flutes, acoustic guitars, and vocals), he was also joined by Florian Opahle (guitars, acoustic and electric), David Goodier (bass and glockenspiel), John O’Hara (all keyboards including accordion), James Duncan (drums and percussion), Kathryn Troester (flutes), Astrid Cienia (oboes), and Sibylie Wähnert (bassoon).   This is a wonderful album that puts an entirely new spin on the stellar compositions by this phenomenal band.  We hope you will investigate this one to the fullest as it’s a worthy addition.  Enjoy.

I began my career in the early 1970’s when I apprenticed to cook under one of the masters on the Big Island where I was born. I moved to Oahu in the early 1980’s after having worked in both Kona and Hilo, HI, and have been there for most of my professional career. Moreover, I have also worked on Maui for a few years (1995-1998) and have been on Kauai (2001-2003) before returning to Honolulu. My goal is to prepare the next generation of chefs for the future and to help the underprivileged in their struggle to attain careers in the foodservice industry. Chef Cheryl La Tigre writes from Honolulu, HI. Chef Cheryl La Tigre is a proud member of the Democratic Party. Contact me at the following address: cherylthetiger81@gmail.com
