Been So Long

Toni Lynn Washington

Publication YearIssue Date 

Boston-based vocalist Toni Lynn Washington's fourth album is a testament to her favorite standard blues tunes. While nothing ground-breaking is offered, the listener can simply enjoy the sultry sounds of Washington's dynamic voice--her vocals are the defining factor in making this a unique piece of work.

Been So Long is chock full of tinkling piano, soulful horns, slinky slide guitar and thoughtful arrangements performed by her hand-picked blues band.

This is not the most innovative blues album ever made, but that's not what the blues is about, it's about emotion, and there's no shortage of that on this disc.
