Chris Thomas King's latest CD is called The Legend of Tommy Johnson. It comes with a heavy conceit. King played the fictional blues musician Tommy Johnson in the film O Brother, Where Art Thou, and now has reprised the role on this new album. King is also a blues musician in his own right. He delivers a survey of blues music past and present. The CD is reviewed by Scott Aiges.
