JJ Cale 1938-2013

JJ Cale¬†was born and raised in Oklahoma and was known for The Tulsa Sound, which was a blend of unique hybrid of blues, cajun, folk and jazz styles. I never had the pleasure of meeting or working with JJ but he did influence my band The Jerms in the sixties. I also enjoyed playing some of his songs like “After Midnight” and “Cocaine” by Eric Clapton. He was also involved with Leon Russell and Shelter Records.

God bless JJ Cale.
