JIMMY HALL / HENRY PAUL / DAN TOLER "Oklahoma Blues - Tribute To JJ Cale" This tribute recasts JJ Cale’s songs across a wide range of Roots music styles – from the contemporary electric Blues of Jimmy Hall and Swamp Cabbage over the Nashville sounds of Dixie Tabernacle to the arena-sized Led Zeppelin-styled Rock of Rufus Huff, and the acapela soul of The Persuasions.

JIMMY HALL / HENRY PAUL / DAN TOLER "Oklahoma Blues - Tribute To JJ Cale" This tribute recasts JJ Cale’s songs across a wide range of Roots music styles – from the contemporary electric Blues of Jimmy Hall and Swamp Cabbage over the Nashville sounds of Dixie Tabernacle to the arena-sized Led Zeppelin-styled Rock of Rufus Huff, and the acapela soul of The Persuasions. When the history of American Rock, Blues and Roots music of the late 20th century and beyond will be written, there is no doubt that Oklahoma-born song-writer, singer and guitarist JJ Cale will be a significant chapter in it. Cale has become a huge influence on the adult oriented roots rock of Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler, Bonnie Raitt, and many others. His songs have been successfully covered not only by Eric Clapton, but also by Lynrd Skynrd, the Band, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and Santana, to name a but few. His many collaborations with Clapton in particular have been highly successful: their 2006 CD album release “The Road to Escondido” won a Grammy in the “Best Contemporary Blues Album” category in 2008! "Wet Willie” original founder and front man Jimmy Hall was born in Birmingham, Alabama. He is best known for his spectacular vocals on the group’s feel-good hits “Keep On Smilin’”, “Grits Ain’t Groceries” and “Dixie Rock”. In 1985, Jimmy was nominated for a Grammy award for Best Male Rock Vocalist for his work on Jeff Beck’s album “Flash”.

Jimmy’s most recent CD “Build Your Own Fire”, released on ZOHO in 2007, garnered rave reviews in the international press. He tours with Wet Willie and as band leader for Hank Williams Jr. Jimmy brings a variety of musical talents to the “Brothers” with his bluesy saxophone and harmonica work as well as his incredible vocals. Henry Paul, a founding member of The Outlaws and BlackHawk, adds his instantly recognizable voice to the “Brothers”, and also plays mandolin and acoustic guitar on several tracks.

Henry was born in Kingston, New York but moved to central Florida in his early years. The Outlaws hit list includes “Green Grass and High Tides”, “Ghost Riders in the Sky” and “There Goes Another Love Song”. In 1992, Henry formed the band BlackHawk and found instant success with the mega country hits “Goodbye Says It All” and “Every Once In A While”. Dan Toler, also known as “Dangerous Dan” Toler, is a guitarist from Indiana who became popular in the 1970s as a member of Dickie Betts’ “Great Southern”.

He was also a member of the Allman Brothers Band from 1978 – 82, of the Greg Allman Band in the 1980s and 90s and of again of a re-formed “Great Southern” in the 2000s. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
