Anybody have any harp jazz reccs similar to Alice Coltrane?

@joemama

Jazz harp players are few and far between but here are some recs:
Anything by Brandee Younger
the albums "When the World Was One," "Into Forever," and "Oneness" by Matthew Halsall

Coltrane had a "bite" to her music I haven't really found replicated anywhere but these at least feature some good jazz harp

@joemama have you listened to any Dorothy Ashby? I've only listened to her album called Afro-Harping & I think its wonderful. Definitely recommend if you haven't already listened

@joemama

not quite in the coltrane vein, but Dezron Douglas & Brandee Younger play as a harp/bass duo, really engaging sound.

@joemama I have swam the seas of harp jazz and I'm sorry to tell you the answer is no.

Philip Cohran plays harp on this mother of a record though: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQUd4nZ2Krk
