Dorothy Ashby

So I dated this guy and he gave me this Dorothy Ashby vinyl for my birthday which I thought was super cool and thoughtful! Prior to the gift, I actually had no idea who Dorothy Ashby was but I’m really glad and grateful that I do now.

Dorothy Ashby is a Jazz harpist and before listening to her music I honestly had never really heard of jazz harp and I think it’s because jazz harp is rare type of music to master. Personally I think the harp is a very uncommon instrument, beautiful, but not too common so for this musician to be able to master an uncommon instrument in addition to jazz..? A lot of my respect goes out to this woman for sure.

The song here is “You stepped out of a dream” and it’s beautiful, it feels very timeless and romantic.
