Sutton Sorensen's debut album Long, Long Time is a collection of originals and inventive covers of well-known songs, highlighted by Sorensen's cool but involving voice. The arrangements are smooth as silk, designed to leave most feathers unruffled—this is adult-contemporary territory, to be certain—but there's a confidence and assurance to Sorenson's delivery that gives the album a winning, personal feel. Some covers fare better than others; U2's "Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" feels lacking in urgency and Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes" is more or less by-the-numbers, but Sorensen's take on Joni Mitchell's "Carey" is a bull's eye, and her version of Blind Faith's "Can't Find My Way Home" is delicate and warm. Sorensen celebrates the new album at tonight's release show. NED LANNAMANN
