The Section (band)
The Section were a US rock band formed in the early 1970s that encompassed both studio and stage work by musicians Danny Kortchmar, Craig Doerge, Leland Sklar, and Russ Kunkel. Their frequent appearances on the records of artists signed to Asylum Records made them the label's de facto house band.
They appeared together and individually on albums by Linda Ronstadt, Crosby & Nash, James Taylor, Carole King, Jackson Browne, Warren Zevon, and James Blunt and acted as back-up band on their tours.
The Section released three mostly instrumental albums.
- The Section (1972, Warner Bros) also features a young Michael Brecker and a cover of Otis Redding's "Dock of the Bay".
- Forward Motion (1973, Warner Bros)
- Fork It Over (1977, Capitol), with help from James Taylor and Crosby & Nash
- Browne, David (April 11, 2013). "The Knights of Soft Rock". Rolling Stone (1180): 52–59, 70.
