    Absolutely SEMINAL deep funk and jazz and from harpist Dorothy Ashby.

    Perhaps lesser known than Alice Coltrane, Dorothy Ashby remains the best-kept secret for those who know! This album is killer (heavier than Ashby's 'Afro-Harping' in our humble opinion).

    Produced by Richard Evans (and sounding like the best of Charles Stepney's work) in 1970 for Cadet/Chess, the album features deep, deep sounds - including spoken word and amazing vocals (by Dorothy Ashby herself), vibes, kalimba, the Soulful Strings, and exotic instrumentation on a this 100% successful high-concept album.

    This Verve By Request title is pressed on 180-gram vinyl at Third Man in Detroit.
