NEW YORK, Oct. 24 (UPI) -- Walter Yetnikoff, energetic music chief at CBS and Sony in the 1970s and '80s, has a new recording niche -- for the movies.
Yetnikoff and producer Tracy McKnight have co-founded Commotion Records, an independent label that will specialize in film music.
"Our niche is indie movies," Yetnikoff said. "We're ready to collaborate with a director or a studio in order to do the music supervising, acquire the soundtrack -- or both."
Koch Entertainment has signed a contract to provide the New York-based label with sales and marketing services.
Composer-trumpeter Mark Isham wrote the score. The soundtrack features Diana Krall, 'NSync's Joey Fatone, Bobby Caldwell, Tierney Sutton and Sorvino, who plays Bobby Stafford, a lounge singer on his last legs.
