This DOUBLE-LP brings together, for the first time, 'Hip Harp' and 'In A Minor Groove', the two albums recorded in 1958 by the legendary Dorothy Ashby. Dorothy had a unique soul jazz harp sound, used in a swinging way, but also reminding of traditional African stringed instruments. Ashby was part of the same scene as Yusef Lateef, and like Lateef, she managed to use odd instrumentation in new contexts, to get a very unique jazz sound. This is a numbered first press of 500 copies.
