MAKE MOVES 11 feat. Denny Tedesco, Producer of The Wrecking Crew! tells us how he made a movie that nobody thought he could make… with his own money… in his own way. The end result was an award winning documentary about an elite crew of Los Angeles studio musicians – including his father, Tommy Tedesco, one of the most recorded guitar players in history – who played on literally all of the hits to come from the West Coast music scene during the 1960’s. But Denny explains that he had to invest almost two decades of his life and be willing to take huge personal risks to finish the movie on his own terms. He discusses how he did it, why he couldn’t stop, the ramifications for his family, his personal connection to the movie’s story, and he reveals his ability to generate creative solutions.
With permission, this episode features four songs off of The Wrecking Crew! sound track: Be My Baby by the Ronettes, God Only Knows by the Beachboys, Danke Shoen by Wayne Newton, and The Beat Goes On by Sonny & Cher.
