IMMEDIATE FAMILY WEEK!
Leland Sklar Picks The Essential Billy Cobham
Leland Sklar shares his essential Billy Cobham songs. Following a six-week tour where Lee’s band The Section (with Danny Kortchmar and Russ Kunkel) opened for Mahavishnu Orchestra, Lee got a call from MO’s incomparable drummer, Billy Cobham, to join him on his first solo record. That record would also feature Jan Hammer, the late Tommy Bolin and would become the ferocious masterpiece known as Spectrum. Lee shares his memories of how that record came together, what it meant to him working with those fellow greats, how it influenced his approach and life, and so much more. We also talk a lot about Immediate Family, his career, and even take some detours into The Wrecking Crew, The Funk Brothers, Phil Collins, and much more.
Long-time friends and musical collaborators Danny Kortchmar, Russ Kunkel, Waddy Wachtel, Steve Postell, and Leland Sklar have come together to form The Immediate Family. Tune in this week on Pods & Sods as they each share memories of their careers, pick the essential songs from some of their favorite colleagues, talk about their new album, and much more!
