From

Hear new blues on tonight's New Sounds, including music from the likes of Bobby McFerrin and the recent record "Spirityouall."  McFerrin takes two lines from Psalm 25, "'You know my eyes are ever on the Lord, for only He will release my feet from the snare," and turns them into a deeply bluesy spiritual.  Also, listen to arrangements of Skip James and Charlie Patton blues by Chris Thomas King and the Soldier String Quartet. Plus, Ali Farka Toure’s collaboration with Ry Cooder, along with Cooder’s own “Paris,Texas” score, and more.
