J-Tull Dot Com (1999) is the 20th studio album by the British band Jethro Tull. It was released four years after their 1995 album Roots to Branches and continues in the same vein, marrying hard-rock with Eastern music influences. It is the first album to feature both Andrew Giddings on keyboards and Jonathan Noyce on bass, who would remain with the band until 2007, resulting in Jethro Tull's longest ever unchanged line-up. As of 2018, it is the last Jethro Tull album to feature all original, new material.
