To Tulsa and Back: On Tour with J.J. Cale

Although he has written some of the biggest rock hits ever and is regularly offered major concert dates, he lived for years in a trailer, away from the public eye and taking years off between recordings and performances. J.J. Cale is credited with creating the Tulsa Sound, a laid back mix of Rock 'n' Roll, Country, Blues and Jazz. When Mojo Magazine asked Eric Clapton which other musician he would most like to be, he answered "Cale", calling him "one of the masters of the last three decades of music." Clapton had two of his biggest hits with Cale's After Midnightand Cocaine. Neil Young is quoted as saying "He is so sensitive. Of all the players I ever heard, it's gotta be Hendrix and J.J. Cale who are the best electric guitar players." Dire Straits' Mark Knopfler also admits to having based their sound on Cale's unique style. J.J. Cale is a musician's musician. For the first time, Cale has agreed to have a film made about his music, his life and career. The documentary follows him and his band through six American states on his To Tulsa and Back Tour with added footage and photos from throughout Cale's career. His TO TULSA AND BACK album was released in 2004 and his collaboration album with Eric Claption THE ROAD TO ESCONDIDO in 2006.
