Personalities | The Blues Project | Sixties | Jazz & Blues

(Vocal/instrumental group, 1965–71)

The Blues Project was formed around respected session musicians Tommy Flanders (vocals), Danny Kalb (guitar), Steve Katz (guitar, vocals), Al Kooper (organ, vocals), Andy Kulberg (bass, flute) and Roy Blumenfeld (drums). This experimental band, with a love of urban and country blues, quickly rose to the apex of the New York City music scene. By 1967 it had played huge outdoor concerts in Central Park and toured the US, spreading its influence. They recorded three albums, including the excellent debut Live At The Café Au Go Go (1966), before Kooper and Katz departed to form Blood, Sweat & Tears.
