Jonny Lang - Long Time Coming
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Jonny Lang - Long Time ComingThis fall, Martin Scorcese attempts to do for the blues what Ken Burns did for jazz, with a flood of branded CDs and documentaries. Lang, a former guitar prodigy (he recorded his debut album at 15), began as a promising white blues player but moved into soul and r&b territory with his last album, the mediocre Wander this World. His latest is similar, with nods to Prince and Stevie Wonder (including a so-so cover of Wonder’s “Livin’ in the City”). Sadly, only one track, “Long Time Coming,” packs any blues punch at all.
