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.
