ERIC CLAPTON TEAMING UP WITH TOM PETTY & MARK KNOPFLER FOR JJ CALE TRIBUTE ALBUM

On July 29th, Eric Clapton will release the tribute album to his longtime friend and inspiration, the late JJ Cale, called The Breeze, An Appreciation of JJ Cale. Rolling Stone reported the 16-song set will feature collaborations with Tom Petty, Mark Knopfler, Willie Nelson, Derek Trucks, John Mayer, and others. JJ Cale, best known for writing the Clapton standards "After Midnight" and "Cocaine" -- along with Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Call Me The Breeze" -- died on July 26th, 2013 of a heart attack at the age of 74.

Clapton said in a statement announcing the album’s release: "I would like people to tap into what JJ Cale did -- that's the point. I’m just the messenger; I've always felt that that's my job. I try to interpret things so that the public at large, or at least the people who listen to what I do, will become intrigued about where I got it from."

The Breeze
'After Midnight' and 'Cocaine' have been favourites of mine for many, many years. Now this new song, 'Call me the Breeze', as sung by Mark Knopfler, is so excellent that it is already my new favourite!! I will definitely be buying the Album, so please make sure to send copies to Darwin, Australia (especially to the music shop at Casuarina Square!) I will ask them to get it in for me anyway!! Kindest Regards from Christine Teale (Ms.)of Nakara, N.T. 0810
