This LP brings together for the first time, HIP HARP and IN A MINOR GROOVE, the two albums recorded in 1958 by the legendary jazz harpist and polistrumentist Dorothy Ashby. Dorothy Ashby had a unique soul jazz harp sound, and although the instrument she used is probably more thought of in terms of bedtime lullabies, she actually makes it swing nicely, and with a soulful sound that draws back to traditions of African stringed instruments. Ashby was part of the same scene as Yusef Lateef, and like Lateef, she managed to use odd instrumentation in new contexts, to get a very unique jazz sound.

Label: Naxos | Tracks: 08 | Rls.date: 2017

The harp is often said to be the Romantic instrument par excellence, and for this recording the award-winning young harpist Pauline Haas takes the listener on a journey through the repertoire, from the melancholic balladry of John Thomass The Minstrels Adieu to his Native Land to the stunning virtuosity of Albert Zabels Fantasy. Alongside Smetanas perennial favourite Die Moldau she presents her own arrangements, which include the apotheosis of romantic longing, the Liebestod from Wagners Tristan und Isolde.

Label: CPO

Concertgoers and critics alike rave about Silke Aichhorn's entertainingly moderated concerts, and her goal is nothing less than the redefinition of the image of the harp! Active as a soloist and chamber musician, Aichhorn is one of the most sought-after and versatile harpists of her generation. Following her release featuring Eichners harp concertos, she now interprets three harp concertos by Johann Wilhelm Hertel, a composer regarded as one of the most important representatives of the empfindsamer Stil during the German pre-classical period. His concerto oeuvre comprises some fifty solo concertos, and seventeen harpsichord concertos by him are known today. Three works heard on this CD are assigned to the harp or harpsichord: Concerto per la Harpa o il Cembalo concertato. The harp's softer tone seems to make it the more suitable instrument for these charming works of brilliant virtuosity offering top-quality entertainment. Genuine enrichments of the quite compact harp repertoire are in store.

This show was recorded at Cleveland's Beachland Ballroom on November 1, 2008, where Glass Harp headlined a benefit concert for Roots of American Music, an organization dedicated to the preservation, performance and education about traditional American music in our schools. This CD finally captures the raw, improvisational energy and spur-of-the-moment creativity that has defined Glass Harp for decades, but until now has been heard only in a live setting and in the memories of the people who saw it.

By 1971, Glass Harp became one of the most popular (if not one of the highest-paid) groups in Northeast Ohio. This led to both supporting and headlining shows nationally from The Fillmore East to The Winterland Ballroom. On November 21, 1971, the band played an opening spot for The Kinks at New York City's prestigious Carnegie Hall, receiving a thunderous ovation at the end of their hour-long set. This performance was released as the Live! At Carnegie Hall album in 1997.
