JJ Cale: New Album/Tour

JJ CALE CONFIRMS FIRST SOLO TOUR IN FIVE YEARS IN SUPPORT OF
"SUPREMELY CHILL, UTTERLY AGELESS" (ROLLING STONE) NEW ALBUM ROLL ON (ROUNDER RECORDS)

JJ Cale
JJ Cale has confirmed his first tour in five years, returning to the road with a few weeks of solo shows in intimate west coast venues. The tour is in support of his sublime Rounder Records debut Roll On, with a portion of the proceeds from each show to be donated to animal shelters and rescue efforts in each city. The album, out February 24, is getting rave reviews, and the title track featuring Eric Clapton on guitar was the #1 Most Added song at AAA radio in its first week.

"The songs are top-shelf... his bubbling guitar - as much a jam band archetype as Jerry Garcia's - glints across the shadows." -Rolling Stone

"Roll On [is] a showcase for Mr. Cale's laidback shuffle." -The Wall Street Journal

"Roll On finds Cale back in vintage form. You can practically feel the tour bus hitting the open road in the title track." -The Boston Globe

Awesome... I've been wanting to check this guy out for awhile. In the newest issue of Rolling Stone, Cale briefly mentions opening for Phish. This just made my day.

From Rolling Stone:

"Several years ago I got a call saying 'Do you want to open for Phish?'" Cale says. "I said 'Country Joe and the Fish?' They said "This new group called Phish!" If anybody gives you respect after you've been doing it for as long as I have - that's the ultimate."
