Wax Love present a reissue of Dorothy Ashby's self-titled album, originally released in 1962. Dorothy Ashby was perhaps not Detroit's most famous female jazz harpist as that distinction belongs to Alice Coltrane but she was notably the first and a trailblazer who overcame massive setbacks throughout her nearly 30-year recording career. Playing on an instrument not usually associated with jazz, in a male dominated field, Ashby is a true and amazing original. Originally released in 1962, and with the help of a rhythm section of Herman Wright on bass and John Tooley on drums, Dorothy Ashby is one of her earliest titles as a leader and a beautiful piece of innovative mid-century jazz. A mix of originals and tastefully selected covers like Ellington's "Satin Doll" and Neal Hefti's "Li'l Darlin'" this is another lost jazz classic resuscitated by Wax Love.
