O’s Notes: Lauren sings a dozen mostly original, rich ballads for Circle in A Square. A solid rhythm section including Will Lee (b), Andy Ezrin (p), David Finck (b) and Ben Whitman (d) backs her. Kinhan accentuates her program with help from Joel Frahm (sax), Randy Brecker (t), Chuck Loeb (g), Donny McCaslin (sax) and Roberto Mubambo (g). The infusion of all-stars shadowing the vocals combined with a formidable, seemingly effortless performance by Kinhan makes this recording sparkle!
