Now Playing at Jaynes: JJ Cale

We’re getting San Diego Beer Week started out right with a bunch of new music on the playlist including one of our favorite albums, Naturally by JJ Cale. Eric found a nice vinyl copy at Amoeba, SF that reinspired us to this songwriting giant’s amazing solo albums.   Eric Clapton may not have gotten out of the 70’s with a career had it not been for this man’s flawless songs like After Midnight and Cocaine.  Mr. Cale also got some nice ASCAP mailbox money from his song They Call Me the Breeze as recorded by Lynyrd Skynyrd.   JJ currently resides in Escondido.

Check out JJ’s recent version of They Call Me the Breeze on the Jools Holland Show, looking somewhat Jay Porter-esque.   Jay, good luck on the new project!
