(Rhyme or Reason Records)

Chicago-based vocalist Rebecca Sullivan teams up with guitarist Mike Allemana for a fantastic debut effort. This Way, This Time captures the dance between the human voice and the guitar beautifully. The timing and synchronicity between vocalist and guitarist is near perfect. The album has an intimate, quiet feel with nice arrangements by Sullivan and Allemana of some less-covered tunes by known composers. Featured are works by Johnny Mandel and Peggy Lee, Brian Wilson, Frank Loesser and Fredrick Hollander as well as a nice cover of a beautiful Irish traditional. A really wonderful listen.
