The image on the cover of J.J. Cale's fifth album is apt. It's the numeral five as it appears on paper currency; apt for an album that proves that Cale is indeed money in the bank. The album builds a slow but steady momentum with each song, as sturdy supporting grooves abound. Several songs feature Cale by himself or in the company of one other player or singer, and the cast of musicians expertly carry out his visions throughout. Though the album mines a familiar bluesy and rootsy territory, Cale gives it all his own signature stamp. Cale extends 5 beyond a back-porch, small-combo affair by utilizing strings on two tracks, "Sensitive Kind" and "Mona." The lushness that the strings provide adds a luxuriousness to his version of the blues, in much the same manner as B.B. King and Ray Charles.
