LISTEN HERE NOW! Eric Clapton recently spoke to Eric Westervelt of National Public Radio (NPR) about the recording of his new album, "The Breeze (An Appreciation of JJ Cale)" and his friendship with the late American songwriter and musician. Clapton laments that Cale is better known in Europe than his home country and reveals that one year after his passing, we still don't know the half of his songrwriting talent. NPR posits that fans who love the guitar hero's scorching electric solos and those who prefer his more mellow pop might find common ground on "The Breeze."
Days prior to the release of "The Breeze (An Appreciation of JJ Cale)" in the U.K. and U.S., Eric Clapton spoke by phone from London to The San Diego Union-Tribune's George Varga. In the lengthy interview, Clapton discusses bonding with Cale at Albert Lee's home around 1980, the idea for "The Breeze" germinating on a flight from London to Los Angeles on his way to Cale's memorial service, and the guitarist's memories of recording "The Road To Escondido" with Cale in 2006. Also interviewed are Cale's widow and steel guitarist / vocalist, Christine Lakeland, Nathan East (who plays on the album), and guitar maker Danny Ferrington.
