Dorothy Ashby - Afro Harping

Although there are few examples of the Harp being used in Jazz, the work of Dorothy Ashby made sure it had an important place. She turned the harp into a lead instrument, and offered solos that were as tough and memorable and as good as those done by any reed, brass, or percussion player. Without doubt this album is one of the best examples of how the harp has played an important role in the history of jazz.
