Dorothy Ashby • The Best Of Dorothy Ashby

There have been very few jazz harpists in history and Dorothy Ashby was one of the greats. Somehow she was able to play credible bebop on her instrument. This is an absolutely beautiful album that lightly swings and cooks, backed-up by the lovely ballad Moonlight In Vermont as well on which Wess' flute work is simply gorgeous.

1. Pawky [Ashby]
2. Moonlight in Vermont [Blackburn, Suessdorf]
3. Back Talk [Ashby ]
4. Dancing in the Dark [Dietz, Schwartz]
5. Charmaine [Pollack, Rapee]
6. Jollity [Ashby]
7. There's a Small Hotel [Hart, Rodgers]
