The Preacher, The Politician Or The Pimp
raises the ante on Toronzo's modern day blues vision, with 12 distinctive new songs that skillfully blend witty, "ain’t it the truth" anthems with searing topical observations. Through it all Toronzo burns on guitar and brings his lyrics to life with spirited, soul-drenched singing. "Deep, contemporary Chicago blues...razor-sharp guitar and compelling, forceful singing" —Chicago Tribune

First I’d like to thank the Creator for giving me some talent. Thanks to Alligator Records for believing in me. A shout-out to all the staff of Alligator for helping me help myself. Thanks to Blaise and Brian at Joyride Studios. Thanks to the hardworking musicians and singers on this project. Thanks to Lisa Panoyan for telling me the truth when I needed it. Thanks to Rick Booth and Intrepid Artists for giving me places to tell my stories. Thanks to Gayun and all my family, friends and fans around the world.

And thanks and honor to all the fallen Blues soldiers we’ve lost in the genre. Your spirits will live on.

Thanks to all the companies that contribute to my sound: GTR Guitars; Victoria Amps; Function F(X); DR strings and Shure.
