Jazz Connective – AlinaHipHarp Quintet

Internationally renowned harpist Alina Bzhezhinska has a strong reputation for innovation. This time she creates a unique sound on the harp with effect pedals and electronics, featuring the innovative trumpeter Jay Phelps, supported by Mikele Montolli (bass), Joel Prime (percussion) and Adam Teixeira (drums). Through a combination of original works and covers, she pays homage to some of jazz, funk and hip-hop’s greatest innovators. Her quartet draws from a variety of influences, including the likes of Dorothy Ashby’s ‘Afro-harping’, Alice Coltrane’s spiritual outputs and elements of Afrobeat.’ “AlinaHipHarp” new album will be recorded in the end of 2020.
