John Lee Hooker, Through His Daughter's Eyes

When legendary bluesman John Lee Hooker died in 2001, he was working on songs for what would be his last recording, Face to Face.

Hooker's daughter, Zakiya Hooker -- a blues musician in her own right -- finished producing the album after his death. In the wake of a new set of previously unreleased recordings from Hooker, Zakiya Hooker talks with NPR's Jennifer Ludden about her father's musical legacy.
