The Session Musicians: Danny Kortchmar

As part of L.A. session collective The Section, guitar man Danny "Kootch" Kortchmar played a huge part in forging the singer/songwriter sound of the '70s. To hear his loose-limbed licks blending blues, jazz, and even Eastern influences on Carole King's titanic "It's Too Late" or his sassy string-bending on James Taylor's "Your Smiling Face" is to hear the era's troubadour movement evolve before your very ears.
