Jethro Tull Christmas Songs & Music

With their experimental blues rock and evocative, folksy flute playing, Jethro Tull was always destined to release a Christmas record like to no other. After more than thirty years of developing their own inimitable style, the British rock group finally gave the world an album of refreshingly different Christmas music.

2003: The Jethro Tull Christmas Album

The Jethro Tull Christmas Album barely touches on traditional carols, instead being a fascinating mix of the group’s old and new holiday themed originals. The songs take a look at Christmas from all angles, including New Year’s gatherings (Last Man at the Party), the holiday’s pagan roots (Ring Out Solstice Bells) and Birthday Card at Christmas, a catchy tune celebrating the birth of Christ. When Jethro Tull does attempt some Christmas classics, they are in the form of instrumentals. Even these are anything but predictable, with a jazzed up rendition of God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman and a racing Greensleeves in which the flute solo is purely virtuosic.
