Presenting Alina’s Bzhezhinska’s latest project

HipHarpCollective

The music of Dorothy Ashby & Alice Coltrane


Award winning harpist Alina Bzhezhinska brings her latest project brings to life with the finest compositions of legendary harpists Dorothy Ashby and Alice Coltrane. Along with UK’s top jazz musicians, she created a very unique programme that is based on deep and thorough study of Ashby’s innovative album Afro Harping and Coltrane’s spiritual recordings of Journey in Satchidananda and Eternity.

"Miss Ashby deserves a place in the sun…because of her ability to offer the world a sound that is a clear voice in the wilderness of bland commercialism."
Del Shields, 1968

”Sometimes people put themselves so deep into sound – so deep into it that they give up everything. It’s like they renounce everything at that moment just to live those moments of music.”
Alice Coltrane, 1967

Both coming from jazz background in Detroit, these remarkable female artists had different life journeys and worked in different genres of jazz, making valuable contribution into development of contemporary music. The legacy of Dorothy Ashby and Alice Coltrane left behind cannot be overstated, their works deserve respect and recognition. Their influence in modern music is remarkable and their music keeps inspiring many generations of performers and listeners.



"...Bzhezhinska’s superlative touch on the instrument does her role model proud..."
Kevin Le Genre, Jazz Critic, JazzWise May 2017

“…A sincere and abiding love for Ms Coltrane’s transporting and ineffably mystical compositions…”
Daniel Spicer, Jazz Critic, JazzWise April 2017

*****Three Weeks, Edinburgh Festival
