Definitive deep funky album from harpist Dorothy Ashby. Excellent late 60's soulful jazz harp recorded for Chess with arrangements by Richard Evans and a killer (unknown) line-up! Samples galore, from "Soul Vibrations" and "Come Live With Me", plus a version of "Little Sunflower". Like an earlier version of Alice Cotrane's seminal 70s releases on Impulse.
