Immediate Family is the story of the brilliant session musicians who worked with the biggest stars of the 1970s and beyond: Danny Kortchmar, Leland Sklar, Russ Kunkel and Waddy Wachtel. They created the “Singer/Songwriter sound” and backed up iconic artists like James Taylor, Carole King, Jackson Browne, Don Henley, Linda Ronstadt, Warren Zevon and many more. A lively and entertaining documentary, Immediate Family is a fascinating portrait of how this timeless music was made.
