Thick As A Brick

Sunday, November 23rd, 2008

I went to The Pancake House this morning with the brothers when the discussion turned to jazz flute… again.  Aric went to the Chicago Bluegrass and Blues festival and endured an especially long, smooth, jazz flute solo.  He claimed that flutes don’t really have a place outside of orchestral music (especially at a bluegrass festival) and I suggested that Jethro Tull might be a possible exception.  In the course of my argument,  I may have struck an Ian Anderson pose.

As we were getting ready to leave, a middle-aged lady came up to me and asked, “Do you really like old music like Jethro Tull?”  I didn’t know how to respond.  Then she added, “I saw you imitating him,” and I really didn’t know how to respond.
