This exact repro vinyl reissue of Dorothy Ashby's classic, funky 1968 LP 'Afro Harping' is now BACK IN PRINT! Along with Alice Coltrane, Ashby extended the popularization of jazz harp past a novelty, showing how the instrument can be utilized seamlessly as much a be-bop instrument as the saxophone. Her albums were of the jazz genre, but often moved into R&B, world and other musical territories.
