Nashville-based singer/songwriter A.J. Croce has recently has created a very special concert experience that celebrates both his own music and that of his father, the late Jim Croce. Entitled Croce Plays Croce: Two Generations of American Music, the show features A.J. Croce, who was only 2 when his dad dies in an airplane crash, performing his songs, his father’s tunes and music that influenced both of them. The idea came to him when he was digitalizing some of his father’s old tapes and came across a cassette filled with covers of old blues and folk tunes by Fats Waller, Bessie Smith and Pink Anderson. It was a revelation to him. Jim Croce, who died in 1973, remains as popular as ever. His record sales have surpassed the 45 million mark, and his songs have appeared on over 375 compilations.
