Eric Clapton has often stated that JJ Cale is one of the single most important figures in rock history, a sentiment echoed by many of his fellow musicians. Cale’s influence on Clapton and many of today’s artists cannot be overstated. To honor JJ’s legacy, a year after his passing, Clapton, along with a group of like-minded friends and musicians, is releasing Eric Clapton & Friends “The Breeze (An Appreciation of JJ Cale).” With performances by Clapton, Mark Knopfler, John Mayer, Willie Nelson, Tom Petty, Derek Trucks, Don White and others, the album features beloved JJ Cale songs and is named for the 1972 single “Call Me The Breeze.”
