Album Notes
"With Soul Project, organist Vanessa Rodrigues steps out with infectious grooves and outstanding playing, paying homage to the established organ trio tradition while remaining completely modern.

While Rodrigues has a strong background in everything from classical piano to more spiritual works on church pipe organ, it's clearly the soul-drenched music of artists like Dr. Lonnie Smith, with whom Rodrigues spent a month as a live-in student, that is her main passion.

On Soul Project Rodrigues is teamed with guitarist Donna Grantis (Prince - 3rd Eye Girl), a player with a warm, Grant Green-esque tone and similarly blues-informed approach; and drummer Jean-Pierre Levesque, who is as comfortable with the New Orleans second line approach of 'Marble Rye' as he is the deeper funk of 'The Red Dirt Jam.' Turntablist DJ Killa-Jewel is featured on four of tracks, adding a taste of hip hop to the mix."

CD mini-review from the Montreal Mirror:

Vanessa Rodrigues Soul Project (independent) Montreal's queen of the Hammond B-3 organ shows her skills on this funky, 10-song offering. One of the few who've gone that extra mile to do it right with style. 8.5 (SC)
