    Dorothy Ashby Information Request To People Who Knew Dorothy Ashby

    My name is Christopher and I run two web locations that are about the legendary Detroit jazz harpist, Dorothy Ashby. One is called "The Dorothy Ashby Legacy Photograph Collection" at Flickr https://www.flickr.com/photos/muycoo...7626517854229/ The other site is called "Dorothy Ashby: Jazz Harp Genius and More!" at Facebook https://www.facebook.com/pages/Dorot...8547123?ref=hl I am trying to gather more information about Dorothy Ashby especially about the early Motown albums that she played on as a session musician. Any personal or professional data that anyone might have would be greatly appreciated.

    I have no personal data or other information about Dorothy Ashby, my second favorite
    jazz harpist after Alice Coltrane but I am very happy that someone has decided to devote
    time and space on the web in tribute to her. I like what Destiny Muhammad is doing too
    but I have to say Brandee Younger has captivated me for some time now. I think Alice
    herself would be impressed with these talented young women and I'll be watching their
    careers as long as I'm able...

    Without having heard a track yet I know I want the Brandee live cd for her backing musicians
    alone. Stacy Dillard is the truth and Dezron Douglas is no joke either. Thanks for the heads up!....
