Robert Randolph And The Family Band In Concert (XPN, 7/20/10)

[T-Bone] Burnett , an auteur of "roots music" production and the man behind the O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack and Robert Plant's collaboration with Alison Krauss, produced Randolph's new record, We Walk This Road. The two aimed to survey the past hundred years of African-American music (with originals, covers and traditional tunes), then sculpt Randolph's sound to set all of the songs in the present. We Walk This Road is Randolph's most ambitious album to date, and you can hear many of its songs (and even a Lady Gaga cover) in Randolph's festival-capping performance at WXPN's XPoNential Music Festival.
