Jazz harp is hip! Australian-born harpist and vocalist, Tara Minton, celebrates the music of Dorothy Ashby.

Revered as the “Queen of Jazz Harp”, Dorothy was a true pioneer in the 50s. Her music had roots in jazz, latin, soul and eastern music. She released 11 albums of her own also recording with Bill Withers, Bobby Womack, Stevie Wonder, and many more.

In a late personnel change, top trumpeter Miguel Gorodi joins Tara along with long term collaborators Ed and David.
