A group of close friends — guitarists Danny 'Kootch” Kortchmar and Waddy Wachtel, bassist Leland Sklar, and drummer Russ Kunkel — became the studio band to the biggest stars of the 1970s and beyond, from James Taylor, Carole King, Don Henley, and Linda Ronstadt to Crosby & Nash, Jackson Browne, Warren Zevon, and Keith Richards. From Denny Tedesco, director of "The Wrecking Crew" (SLIFF 2008), "Immediate Family" follows the next wave of musicians who would change the course of musical history.
