Eric Clapton has often stated that JJ Cale is one of the single most important figures in rock history. To honour JJ's legacy, a year after his passing, Clapton gathered a group of like-minded friends and musicians for Eric Clapton and 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 and is named for the 1972 single 'Call Me The Breeze.'
