George Klein presents the second hour of his feature on harpist Dorothy Ashby, focusing on her 1960s recordings from trio sessions on Argo (Dorothy Ashby) and Atlantic (The Fantastic Jazz Harp) to larger orchestrated productions on Cadet in the late 1960s produced by Richard Evans (Soul Vibrations, Afro Harping, Dorothy’s Harp, and The Rubaiyat of Dorothy Ashby, in which she plays koto and piano as well as harp, and also sings and narrates).
