That’s a really good album. I call that type of music light jazz. It’s like lounge but with some schmaltz removed, and added some jazz chops on the lead instrument.
Tequila by Wes Montgomery is a good example.
I recently got two late sixties Tony Mottola (who sadly passed away a couple of weeks ago), and they fit that desciption, too. Being on Projet 3 like Command and Grand Award they’re Enoch Light productions.

More CDs going together well with Dorothy Ashby are:
Groovin’ with the Soulful Strings,
Cal Tjader Plays The Contemporary Music Of Mexico And Brazil,
the various artists compilation California Dreamin’ Jazz Exotica (on Impulse),
Spanish Rice by Clark Terry & Chico O’Farrill,
How About Uke? Lyle Ritz Plays Jazz Ukulele
and for the adventerous there’s a Don Sebesky album but the title escapes me now.
One of my favorite jazz guitarists is Gabor Szabo, who had a gypsy vibe woven into his groovy jazz lines.

I was lucky in that my Mom worked in a trendy would music record store during the very early sixties, so I grew up listening to A. Lyman and Julie London, and bizarre albums like "afro-gypsia", "voodoo drums in hi-fi" and other crazy stuff! All of my Mom's original albums are stamped "demo only"
