Ashby, Dorothy – “In a Minor Groove” – [Prestige/New Jazz]

Fantasy Studios in Berkeley remastered this CD from two 1958 sessions that were issued at the time as the LPs ???Hip Harp??? and ???In A Minor Groove???, so named because all pieces are in a minor key. (Both LPs??? original liner notes are included.) Dorothy Ashby???s harp is jazzy and almost guitar-like and works beautifully with Frank Wess???s flute. Fine rhythm from Herman Wright on bass and Arthur Taylor or Roy Haynes on drums.

Gorgeous, satisfying, swings-like-hell jazz.
