Extracting XML value

SQL 2008

I have the following example of xml in a sql column in a table

<CaseInception xmlns="http://www.smith.com/schemas/catch/bft" CaseTarget="C3">
  <Basic>
    <Client>
      <Source>001-001-34</Source>
           </Client>

I want to extract the <Soucrce> value from this (in this case) 001-001-34 from the xml

How would I do this?

this should do:
declare @xml xml 
set @xml = '<CaseInception xmlns="http://www.smith.com/schemas/catch/bft" CaseTarget="C3">
  <IM3eBasic>
    <Client>
      <Source>001-001-34</Source>
           </Client> </IM3eBasic></CaseInception>'

;WITH XMLNAMESPACES(DEFAULT 'http://www.smith.com/schemas/catch/bft')
select x.value('.', 'varchar(100)') v
from @xml.nodes('//Source') as T(X)
 --, @xml.value('//Source/*', 'varchar(100)')

;with XMLNAMESPACES (
 'http://www.smith.com/schemas/catch/bft' as ms
  )

select
   c.query('data(./ms:source)')
from
   (
    select XMLCOL from table
   ) A1 (x)
   cross apply x.nodes('/ms:CaseInception/ms:IM3eBasic/ms:Client') XMLTABLE(c)



My xpath might be off but that's the general approach.

Thanks last answer worked

However I want to join other tables to it as below, and want to able to select matterid as below I keep getting the error 'A1' has more columns than were specified in the column list. Any ideas.

Thanks for your help so far

;
WITH XMLNAMESPACES (
 'http://www.jewel.com/schemas/FlexiWeb/CIF' AS ms
  )

SELECT c.matterid,
   CAST(c.query('data(./ms:SourceOfBusiness)') AS VARCHAR)  [ws]
FROM
   (
    SELECT j.Manifest,m.matterid FROM matter m INNER JOIN dbo.WorkSource ws ON ws.WorkSourceId = m.WorkSourceId
LEFT OUTER JOIN [FlexiWebII].[dbo].[Promotion] p ON m.AccountsReference = p.PromotionValue
LEFT OUTER JOIN [FlexiWebII].[dbo].[Job] j ON j.JobId = p.JobId
WHERE ws.WorkTypeId = 17
   ) A1 (x)
   CROSS APPLY x.nodes('/ms:CaseInception/ms:IM3eBasic/ms:Client') XMLTABLE(c)
