Drummer Dave King (he of the Bad Plus) is also a pianist, and he leads the Dave King Trucking Company. King has just released a brand new record of rock-based jazz married to traditional American folk music, or at least classic Nashville sounds of the '60s and '70s.  We'll sample some of this latest release - "Good Old Light" on this New Sounds.  Plus, there's also music from like-minded ensembles, perhaps involving cellist Erik Friedlander and his "Block Ice & Propane, along with something from pipa player Wu Man and her Appalachian friends.  Also, listen for music from Bill Frisell, and something from the Tin Hat Trio, as a tribute to Bill Frisell.
