AllMusic Review by

Michelle Sell's debut solo release offers something a bit different for lovers of harp music. Rooted in the gracefulness of the classical tradition, her music offers rich melodies and a wide variety of rhythmic colorings. Five tracks are collaborations with master cellist David Darling, and several other fine musicians contribute their talents, including Radhika Miller on flute and recorder, Jannine Del Arte on saxophone, and percussionists Tony D'Anna and Kim Atkinson from the group Tokenki. There are a couple of harp solos but mostly Circle 'Round the Moon features tasteful and elegant ensemble playing with cross-over appeal.
