Diving into some jazz here, we find Dorothy Ashby – a Detroit-born jazz harpist. I came across this album through the YT sidebar (per usual) and really liked what I heard. I’m a massive fan of every indie person’s fav harpist, Joanna Newsom, and am slowly diving into the fantastic works of experimental harpist Mary Lattimore. This seemed like an easy choice to post, since it’s not often you come across jazz tunes through harp. I still have the rest of her discography to go through, but I’m happy I started with this one.
Also that cover – DAMN! It’s great and reminded me of the Midori Takada album.
