Product Description

Dorothy Ashby-Hip Harp-Jazz Groovy Harp-NEW LP

Hip Harp

Dorothy Ashby
Great stuff by the grooviest artist ever to play a harp! Dorothy Ashby had a unique soul jazz harp sound, and although the instrument she used is probably more thought of in terms of bedtime lullabies, she actually makes it swing nicely, and with a soulful sound that draws back to traditions of African stringed instruments.
Ashby was part of the same scene as Yusef Lateef, and like Lateef, she managed to use odd instrumentation in new contexts, to get a very unique jazz sound.
This set's got harp and flute in the lead, and features the tracks
"Pawky", "Charmaine", "Jollity", and "Back Talk".
Also reissued with the original cover art!
