They combined to do 16 of JJ’s songs, including the title track, “Call Me the Breeze,” which was a hit for Lynyrd Skynyrd. Clapton says his goal in putting the album together was to have others “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 will be out on July 29th. Cale died last July of a heart attack. He was 76.
