Art of the Cover - Eric Clapton & Friends' "The Breeze (An Appreciation Of JJ Cale)" (2014)







A nice portrait of the late great JJ Cale adorns this great tribute album by Eric Clapton and an array of stellar Cale fans.

Cale's influence on Clapton and many of today s artists cannot be understated. 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.

To honor JJ s legacy, a year after his passing, Clapton gathered a group of like-minded friends and musicians for Eric Clapton & Friends - The Breeze (An Appreciation of JJ Cale).

With performances by Clapton, Mark Knopfler, John Mayer, Willie Nelson, Tom Petty, Derek Trucks and Don White, the album features 16 beloved JJ Cale songs.

The album is, of course, named for Cale's mighty 1972 single "Call Me The Breeze."
