Handful Of Tracks Propelled J.J. Cale To Big Leagues

Singer-songwriter J.J. Cale died Friday at the age of 74. His music took the edges off honky-tonk and blues, dressed them in a smoking jacket and ascot, and made them smooth. His most recognizable songs, however, were made famous by Eric Clapton. They include, "Cocaine" and "After Midnight."
