New England singer and songwriter Mary Kaye’s first CD is a strong contender for general listening collections…The songs, all original, vary in style, encompassing jazz, folk, rock, and even a bit of country. Her play list includes a variety of themes, including a song about colors, bubble baths, an ogre, a dancing ball for dolls, as well as familiar storybook characters like Baba Yaga, the Big Bad Wolf, and Humpty Dumpty among others, all with their own twists. Sleeping Beauty, for instance, learns that her beauty lies within her, and is encouraged to open her own eyes. Kaye does a fine job with this recording, and it’s a worthy purchase for collections that circulate general children’s music.
Gentle folk-flavored tunes with a pinch of love and appreciation for the child within us all.
…a truly AMAZING voice!!
…Keep making wonderful music
Each original tune holds wonderful wholesome lyrics set off by beautiful melodic voices. It gives new meaning to folk music. Children of all ages will enjoy this delightful CD.
