After years of admiring each other's musical masterworks, guitar great J.J. Cale and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer/Grammy-winner Eric Clapton have teamed up to create an original album together called The Road to Escondido. The resulting hybrid sound defies labels, and instead finds influence across the spectrum of blues, rock, country, and fold. The songs are warm and rich with deep-flowing rhythms while using an economy of words to express much.

Muze PNote J.J. Cale is perhaps best known for penning hits for Eric Clapton, including "Cocaine" and "Midnight Hour," yet he's also an accomplished and extremely talented songwriter and guitarist. While no one ever declared, "Cale is God," Clapton clearly has always thought highly of him, and in 2006, the Clapton/Cale mutual admiration society finally made its way into the studio.
Muze PNote The result is 14 songs' worth of the relaxed blues hybrid that Cale built his career around and that earned Clapton the nickname '"Slowhand." The duo produced all the tracks and wrote the majority of them, with some help from guests such as Taj Mahal, Derek Trucks, the late Billy Preston, and John Mayer, who wrote the song "Hard to Thrill" for the album. THE ROAD TO ESCONDIDO is a mellow musical good time between friends, and for fans of the two musicians, it's a front-row seat to a rare and scintillating collaboration.

Expert Review CD Review: Eric Clapton and JJ Cale's The Road to Escondido
Cinema Blend CD Reviews
Published on: 11/10/2006 12:00 AM
While Clapton's name would be reason enough to pick up this gem, The Road to Escondido, featuring him and J.J. Cale, is a dual effort through and through. Providing authentic and soulful blues music throughout the album, the synergetic pair cannot be differentiated-either vocally or the full review

Professional Reviews

Q (p.144)
- 3 stars out of 5 - "[V]ery much Cale's record....[He] simply does what he always does, rocking out in his infinitely mellow, less-is-more kind of way."

Dirty Linen (p.40)
- "For those hunkering for Clapton's old-fashioned blues, he does a nice version of Sonny McGhee's 'Sporting Life Blues.'"

No Depression (p.112)
- "Clapton, perhaps seeking approval from his mentor, shapes some of his most concise and sharp solos in years."
