Russell started to gain attention in the musical world, and he decided to move to Los Angeles to work as a session musician.
Russell's musical talent knows no bounds, as he can play the piano, the organ, the guitar, the bass, and even the mandolin,
and his broad set of musical skills made him a highly desirable session musician. He started playing with artists like Ray

Rolling Stones, and many other major artists in music. The reason that Leon Russell was constantly surrounded by phenomenal

biggest forces in the music scene, and even though a great deal of his work was behind the scenes, he has still left an unforgettable
