Here's just one more Dorothy Ashby album to consider.

The great thing about this record is that it's Dorothy Ashby solo. There's nothing else going on, just her and her harp. It's a mix of different tunes, the title piece, of course, at about nine and a half minutes. I've never heard that on the harp before. I like it.
