Unlike most of the music we revel in here at WU, this piece is actually beautiful and accomplished. The weirdness factor is the chosen instrument, the harp, not generally accorded a place in jazz.

There have been other well-known jazz harpists, for example, Alice Coltrane (wife of John Coltrane) and Brandee Younger.
