Drummer And Songwriter Jim Gordon

Joel Najman
In addition to serving as a session drummer for many big name artists, Jim Gordon played drums for the group, Derek And The Dominos

This week Joel Najman's My Place tells the story of drummer Jim Gordon, who from the early 1960's until the dawning of the 1980's was one of Los Angeles' premier session musicians, playing on dozens of hit records by many of the top recording artists of that era. Memorable recordings by Carly Simon, Eric Clapton and George Harrison are among the selections featured.
