Harp and soul

img_1129.JPG

Jazz harpist, Dorothy Ashby on Argo Records.   After successfully integrating the harp into the hard bop and jazz funk idioms of the sixties, Ashby spent the next decade as an LA studio player on sessions with Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, Earth, Wind and Fire and others.   Acid jazz DJ’s picked up on her early recording on Cadet and have sampled her stuff.   This one is here for the striking and artistic cover photo of her hands plucking the strings.   And you thought getting an upright bass to gigs is tough!
