Summary
In a sense, nearly every album Eric Clapton recorded after 1970 has been a tribute to J.J. Cale. On that first solo album, Clapton cut a cover of Cale's "After Midnight" and while he was under the spell of Delaney Bramlett for that album, soon enough Slowhand began drifting toward the laconic shuffle that was Cale's stock in trade. Clapton never hesitated to credit Cale as one of the single most important figures in rock history, dropping his name in interviews and turning "Cocaine" into a modern standard, even going so far in 2006 as to record The Road To Escondido, an entire duet album with the troubadour from Oklahoma. In other words, Clapton owed Cale little; but after Cale passed at 74 years of age, the guitarist decided to pay a full-scale tribute in the form of The Breeze: An Appreciation of J.J. Cale. Working with most of his regular band, Clapton also invited a host of friends who share a soft spot for Cale, including Tom Petty, Mark Knopfler, John Mayer, Willie Nelson, and Don White, the singer from Oklahoma whose vocals are within the range of Cale. All of these musicians do not distract from Clapton's version of J.J.: everybody slides into a laid-back and pristine roots groove --- only "I'll Be There (If You Ever Want Me)" boogies, but "Cajun Moon" skips along as well --- and one that is executed with the precision of old pros. Occasionally, a personal stylistic quirk stamps a track with a signature but everybody is operating at the same relaxed pace, differences between the musicians disappearing alongside distinctions between songs. It is a convincing testament to what Clapton learned from Cale. -- Editorial Review provided by Stephen Thomas Erlewine for All Music Guide, taken and adapted from Barnes And Noble website
