Roll On


J.J. Cale has a great new album on his hands with his 2009 CD Roll On. His first solo album in 5 years and first since his 2006 collaboration with Eric Clapton, Roll On features Cale, admittedly ‘screwing with electronics’ in the studio. With Cale demonstrating his abilities on guitars, pedal steel, bass, drums and synths, Roll On is a solo album in the truest sense of the word. Scat sung jazzy pop at it's best, Roll On features the rock legend playing all of the instruments on most of the tunes with the exception being the title track, featuring Cale in the studio with Eric Clapton. That unreleased collaboration fits in tight with Cale's latest brew of blues, country rock and assorted Americana. Commenting on his keeping his musical flame burning brightly, Cale adds, 'I remember when I made my first album (1972's Naturally), I was 32 or 33 years old and I thought I was way too old then. When I see myself doing this at 70 I go, 'What am I doing, I should be layin' down in a hammock.' www.Rounder.com
