A tribute album in memory of J.J. Cale has been announced and set for release on 29th July.

Headed up by Eric Clapton and titled “Eric Clapton & Friends: The Breeze, An Appreciation of JJ Cale” the album will feature a collection of 16 Cale tracks revisited by Clapton, Mark Knopfler, John Mayer, Willie Nelson, Tom Petty, Derek Trucks and Don White.

On the album, Clapton said (via HenneMusic) :

I would like people to tap into what JJ Cale did – that’s the point,” said Clapton. “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.”

J.J Cale died back in July of 2013 from a heart attack in La Jolla, California aged 74.
