Dorothy Ashby - The Jazz Harpist (1994)
Originally released in 1957 this is a classic recording that features an instrument rarely heard in jazz. Dorothy Ashby was well acclaimed as a jazz artist and produced several other recordings.On this recording she performs three standards and four originals and is joined by a crack team of sidemen. This was re-released on CD in 1992 by Nippon Columbia and again in 1994 by the Jazz Heritage Society (the mp3 files are from the latter.)
