Paolo Andriolo, Ivan Zuccarato and Davide Giovannini gave birth to the musical project Soultrax in 2008 with the intention to re-evaluate soul and funk music through to the collaboration with some of the best singers active in the area of London, among which Vanessa Haynes stands out.
For Jazz by the Pool’s evening, Vanessa Haynes will present her original album “Stay With Me” in which various soul, blues and jazz elements blend creating a magical and unique sound and musical mix as well as an innovative arrangement of soul history’s songs.
The Soultrax have been able to recreate, with only keyboards, bass and drums, their personal sound through a deep research of original sounds and arrangements that have characterized soul music from its origins to nowadays.

Vanessa Haynes, on the scene for 8 years, has a spectacular resume and has had great collaborations: she is the lead singer of the historic funk acid jazz band Incognito, as well as the backing vocalist of Eurythmics, Van Morrison, Chaka Khan, Anastacia, Billy Ocean, Mario Biondi, Lulu and Leon Ware. Vanessa is considered one of the most beautiful and interesting soul-blues voices of the international scene.

Graduated at the Benedetto Marcello Music Conservatory in Venice, Ivan Zuccarato plays both the piano and the keyboards, he is composer, arranger and producer. He has played with Peter Erskine, Alain Caron, Gino Vannelli, Sheila E and many other musicians.
