Danny Kortchmar
“If you’ve listened to Don Henley’s End of the Innocence, Carole King’s Tapestry, Jackson Browne’s Running on Empty, Billy Joe’s River of Dreams, and most of James Taylors recordings, then you’re familiar with the musical influence of guitarist, composer, and producer Danny Kortchmer…or Kootch…as most in the business know him. From his collaborations with Peter Asher, of Peter and Gordon, to touring and playing sessions with Lee Sklar, Russ Kunkel, and Craig Doerge, of the infamous “Section”, Danny has had a career that most would envy. As an accomplished singer-songwriter, he’s worked with people like David Foster, Jay Graydon, Ringo Starr, Bruce Hornsby, Steve Jordan, Pino Palladino, and Tamio Okuda, while producing for others or for his own solo projects. He’s also ready to embark on the 2010 Carole King / James Taylor World Tour called the TROUBADOUR TOUR…connecting once again to tour with his longtime friends of the Section. Inside MusiCast welcomes Danny Kortchmar.

You guys did a good job drawing Danny out into the interview. At first, he wasn't too communicative, but he seemed to get more comfortable as you went along. I wish you might have asked about his experience playing on Gene Clark's "No Other" album (truly a lost classic with many great players and arrangements). Very nice to hear a little about Attitudes. Given their pedigrees, it's stunning that these haven't been out on CD.

Yes I agree, it was a great interview once it got going. Without doubt a very fine musician indeed and this guy plays on so many records that I own!!
