The Blues Project, Projections, 1966 on Verve Folkways.

The Blues Project was only active for a few years around 1966 in Greenwich Village, and included Al Kooper, Roy Blumenfeld, Danny Kalb, Steve Katz, and Andy Kulberg. The record was produced by Tom Wilson who produced many Dylan records in the 60s.

Kooper left just after this, their second LP, to go start Blood Sweat & Tears (with Katz). Kalb had played with Dave Von Ronk and done lots of session work.

The 11:20 Two Trains Running is classic blues, American but imported back through the lens of the white British blues players – the album as a whole mixes jazz, blues, folk, rock – including some great flute work
