When Overqualified Jazz Musicians Go Rocker

That is the title for an intersting story NPR had on an upcomming documentary. They have the audio link up here.

Here is the blurb that goes with it

Day to Day, September 9, 2008 · Music reviewer David Was takes a look at a new documentary about the The Wrecking Crew. They were talented, but relatively unknown musicians responsible for hit songs from famous bands like The Beach Boys and the Monkees in 1960s and 1970s.

It sounds interesting, I just hope someone reminds me of this documentary when it hits DVD or, more likely. some internet video site.

Sounds cool. I love learning about session musicians. At least Brian Wilson is still making music. Phip Spector has his hands full with other diversions.
