Karen Blake gives life to each song, floating through love songs
and uplifting tunes, with ethereal intros, vocal range and perfect phrasing. The musicians on Small Potatoes are firmly in touch
with the spirit of the recording, steeped in soft folk and gorgeous
classical strains. She sings songs by Bruce Hornsby,
Chaka Khan, and Mary Chapin Carpenter, among many others.
So sweet-sounding, it's like folding back the covers of a bed,
anticipating sleep, rest, and peace.
