HASH(0x993694d4) étoiles sur 5 Simply the BEST jazz harp album in history ! 15 août 2004
Par Susan Taggart - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Dorothy played bop with the creme of jazz musicians including Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington and Booker T. Jones. She is best remembered for her pioneering jazz funk studio work in the 1960's. She was befriended by singer Bill Withers, (Lean on Me), who helped her obtain work with Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross and other prominent popular musicians. She released nine solo albums in the 60's, the best of which are the three albums for Cadet:

Afro Harping, Cadet LPS-809,

Dorothy's Harp (VERY RARE - choose between a car payment or the vinyl) her personal best in my opinion Cadet LPS-825

Rubaiyat, Cadet LPS-841

I fell in love with Dorothy Ashby as a little girl, and she became my "hero" upon reading about her life. Her father was jazz guitarist and she grew up sitting in on jams with her piano. She took up the harp in high school where she had to share an instrument with many students. After several successful years as a pianist in Detroit jazz clubs, she took a huge risk in realizing her goal of purchasing her own harp and cleverly marketing her trio with free shows and events.

The album, Afro Harping, is a ground-breaking recording because of its merger of classical string arrangements, chunk bass, tight winds and a throbbing drum beat. The ethic of jazz is to internalize the melody long enough to hold it in your soul. Then, in the case of the harp, to literally PULL it from within your body and using your prism, your own paradigm ... directing its energy through the instrument and sending the song's power into the room. Dorothy's prism was lush, quirky, funky and full of nuance.

I have this quote in calligraphy on my harp rehearsal room wall:

"Jazz harp isn't just a novelty, though that is what you expect. The harp has a clean jazz voice with a resonance and syncopation that turn familiar jazz phrasing inside out."

Simply put, this album is an astonishing fusion of what, until Dorothy, seemed inconceivable to jazz aficionados!

I only learnt about the existence of this record a couple of weeks ago on that great rare groove records web-site HIPWAX, apparently the original vinyl is a real rarity. Imagine my surprise when walking into my favourite record store and there it was on CD!
It is truly beautiful, it's the only record I've ever bought that I've played 5 times in a row upon hearing. While not everyone digs jazz-harp, I'm a big vibes lover, so I think this is amazing. And to be sure, there are some wonderful grooves on this, the song "Afro-harping" is a rare groove lovers wet dream. Unfortunately the session-men aren't credited, I for one would love to know who they were.
It's only going to be available until March 2006, so be quick!

HASH(0x99373168) étoiles sur 5 before there was "downtempo" 12 novembre 2006
Par delvon aka kiwi - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
ground roots for todays downtempo electronic music. unfortunatly not much is known about dorothy ashby, she has worked with alot of big names in the 60's and 70's. as a black female harpist it's a shame she hasn't had more recognition. i just know of 2 album releases the first one is definetly more jazzy and on this one she experiments on the psychodelic side of the 60's decade while retaining a jazz influence. most of the artists on this album are uncredited unfortunatly. with just a few covers of known songs (all acoustic) the other tracks are so ahead of their time, it sounds up to speed with todays artist. this cd is a must own if you enjoy downtempo music. she is a chapter in the history for past, present, and future music!!!!!

HASH(0xa188b978) étoiles sur 5 you can't go wrong with this beautiful and timeless recording 23 juin 2008

It's hard to believe this album was recorded 40 years ago. It's unique in its melding of instrumentation, the compositions are smart and well-constructed, and it's uplifting without being obvious. I've listened to it hundreds of times,bought many copies for friends and I never tire of it. Whenever you don't know what to play, reach for this recording.

HASH(0x9938fcf0) étoiles sur 5 Mesmerizing Discovery! 3 novembre 2014
Par Donald E. Gilliland - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
I had never heard Dorothy Ashby until I played Belle & Sebastian's Late Night Tales Vol. 2, a collection of songs that they recommend or influenced their own music. Anyway, one of the tracks they picked was "Soul Vibrations" by Dorothy Ashby and I was immediately smitten. Wanting to hear more, I ordered this CD and I'm very pleased with me. Well, more than pleased; this is fantastic music!

Ashby is categorized as a "jazz harpist" but she also fused pop and soul elements in these songs to create some absolutely mesmerizing and lovely music. It's all instrumental and it all flows very well. This is music that crosses borders and wins hearts and minds. If you never thought of the harp as a jazz instrument, think again. This is truly beautiful stuff.

The CD comes with a fold-out page, replicating the liner notes from the original album. Although the credits are spotty, it mentions a collaboration on the track "Afro-Harping' with "a talented young guitarist from Chicago, Paul Upchurch." Uh, I assume this is actually PHIL Upchurch, but his tasty guitar licks certainly do add a nice touch to the song.

Very impressed with this album, and I'm excited that Ashby has several other albums in print. I'll be seeking those out ASAP!
