Monday, February 9th, 2015
Vintage Guitar Magazine recently announced that Eric Clapton & Friends’ “The Breeze: An Appreciation of JJ Cale” has won Best Album of the Year in its 2014 Readers’ Choice Awards!
Clapton’s tribute to singer/songwriter J.J. Cale drew acclaim from Vintage Guitar, not only for the noteworthy names he gathered for the effort – Mark Knopfler, David Lindley, Derek Trucks, Albert Lee, Willie Nelson, John Mayer, Doyle Bramhall II, and others – but for Clapton’s ability to get “inside the playing of others with incredible, chameleon-like exactitude.”
