ABOUT THE FILM: IMMEDIATE FAMILY is the story of a group of close friends who became the studio band to the biggest stars of the 1970s and beyond. This documentary chronicles the next wave of studio players to follow in the footsteps of 60s session icons, The Wrecking Crew.
Directed by Denny Tedesco who made the original “The Wrecking Crew” documentary, “Immediate Family” follows the next wave of musicians who would create the Singer-Songwriter sound. They were Leland Sklar, Danny Kortchmar, Russ Kunkel, and Waddy Wachtel. They backed everyone from James Taylor, Carole King, Don Henley and Linda Ronstadt, to Crosby & Nash, Jackson Browne, Warren Zevon, Keith Richards and so many more. This small team of players would go on to change the course of musical history, creating the sound of the 70’s and all that came after.
