JSON path add parent object

I am selecting nodes in a JSON input but cannot seem to find a way to include the parent object 'Number' for each entry that I am querying. I am using pentaho kettle to query the data using JSON input.

Here are the two fields/paths that display the data;
$..Detail..Quantity
$..Detail..Price

and here is the JSON source
{
      "result": [
            {
                  "Number": "123456",
                  "Detail": [
                        {
                              "Quantity": 1,
                              "Price": 287,
                        },
                        {
                              "Quantity": 1,
                              "Price": 413,
                        }
                  ]
            }
      ]
}

I currently get
1, 287
1, 413

but I need to get
123456, 1, 278
123456, 1, 413
as my JSON source will have multiple 'Number's so will need the 'Number' that each 'Quantity' and 'Price' matches
