O’s Notes: June Bisantz (vocals) and Gordon Morell (vocals, g) lead a band that includes Lorenzo Martinez (perc), Tom Lackner (d), Tom Ball (harmonica), and George Friedenthal (p). They swing on “I’m Gonna Sit Right Down And Write Myself A Letter” featuring Jim Mooy (t), followed by the country swagger of “Any Old Time”, a well paired couple of tunes. Next up is “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow” with Latin instrumentation. It’s Been A Long, Long Time is a well-coordinated set of songs describing a roller coaster, romantic encounter, musical partnership, and the incredible friendship between June and Gordon.
