Oklahoma musician JJ Cale passed away this past weekend at age 74. The laid-back singer-songwriter is known for his contribution to the "Tulsa Sound", a sound built more on the groove than anything else. Although he only had one hit of his own, 1971's Crazy Mama, Cale wrote several other songs that have been made popular over the years by the likes of Eric Clapton (After Midnight, Cocaine) and Lynyrd Skynyrd (Call Me The Breeze). Never one to call attention to himself, JJ Cale quietly carved out a musical niche with his own brand of slow-cookin' Southern boogie. His most recent album was 2009's Roll On.
