Jazz harp

When most people think of jazz they don’t think of the harp. But in the 1960s and 70s Alice Coltrane recorded two dozen albums of jazz with the harp in a central role.

Later in her life Coltrane became a Hindu swami at the Sai Anantam Ashram in Malibu, California, where she continued to perform (albeit not jazz, and without her harp) until her death. The ashram closed a decade later, and subsequently burned down in the Woolsey Fire.
