The Blues Project was a group from Greenwich Village in New York, noted for their mastery of a wide range of musical styles and influences, including folk, blues, R&B, jazz and pop.  Unfortunately, the were not together as a group for long, and so their recorded output is rather meager.  Here is The Blues Project singles discography.
