Drummer Dave King (he of the Bad Plus) is also a pianist who leads the Dave King Trucking Company - what he calls his "Americana project." It's 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 record - "Good Old Light" on this New Sounds.
