From the beginning, Jethro Tull has been, to quote one of their songs, “Skating away on the thin ice of a new day.” Even in an era when progressive rock defied many music critics and won audiences with intricate instrumentation and challenging themes, the British band was and remains a confident taker of risks.

More than 50 years after the release of “Aqualung,” the album’s titular song of an elderly man living on the streets invoking both compassion and repugnance, endures as the one audiences clamor for at virtually every show.

But Jethro Tull is about the present as well as the past, fusing sounds of medieval folk and classical music with contemporary topics such as the ever-increasing pace of life, alienation from institutions such as organized religion, and love as a source of strength amid uncertainty.
