Born in Detroit in 1932, Dorothy Ashby gave the harp a jazz voice. In her hands, the historically classical instrument which seemed to just scare people, became a versatile swingin' voice able to drive a whole jazz rhythm section. Recorded in 1958 by master Rudy Van Gelder and originally released on the Prestige label, 'Hip Harp' is a perfect example of Ashby's artistry. At the head of a fine quartet featuring the great Frank Wess on flute, Herman Wright on bass, and master Art Taylor on drums, Ashby creates a deeply unique kind of jazz.
