JJ Cale is embarking on his first set of live dates since 2004, following the release of his first solo CD of new material in
nearly five years, Roll On (February 24, 2009 release on Rounder Records). Roll On follows Cale’s Grammy-winning,
gold-certified 2006 album with Eric Clapton, The Road to Escondido. The title track features a previously unreleased

Santana and The Allman Brothers, while Mark Knopfler, Neil Young, and Bryan Ferry have all cited his influence. JJ

including Spiritualized, Beck, Band Of Horses, Widespread Panic and moe
