Album Notes
"Closer Than They Appear, is the synthesis of folk, blues, and jazz. Sara K. has added more fuel to the controversy: Is there a common ground between folk and jazz? Sara K. (Paired with Chesky guitarist Bruce Dunlap who serves as her musical director) takes ready advantage of not only her labels' penchant for painstaking fidelity, but she also samples an arsenal of jazz tones and musical genre's."
This CD was recorded in the original RCA studios in 1992, her first for Chesky Records. It includes some of her finest originals, as well as a unique, compassionate rendition of Dylan's "Like A Rolling Stone". Along with Bruce, Sara is accompanied by Jamie Haddad on percussion, as well as upright bass, hammered dulcimer and saxophone.
Southwest rugged romance meets uptown New York in the perfect acoustical setting.

Beautiful, compelling, stunning, essential
This may well be Sara K's finest album-- which is saying something because all her work IMO is of a very high standard and quality. It's definitely one of my favorite albums of the '90's. She's one of the few artists who has taken some of Joni Mitchell's ideas of morphing pop, folk, jazz, soul and soft rock into a new and lyrical amalgamation, and yet Sara is very distinctive too. Centerpiece here is the wry and wonderful acoustic reading of Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone, but such songs as "Steam Rises, " Tecolote Eyes," "Jasmine" & many others are also fantastic songs and performances.
