Leland Sklar

Lee Sklar has been a prominent figure among Hollywood session bassists dating back to the 1970's and ever since. Sklar has more than 2,500 albums to his credit (and still counting), and is considered to be one of the "A" players in the highly selective L.A. music community where the competition for recording dates is fierce, and where only the strongest will survive. His very recognizable bass playing style has been heard on hits by Linda Ronstadt, James Taylor, Hall & Oates, Jackson Browne, Phil Collins, Clint Black, Reba McEntire, Billy Cobham, and George Strait, to name just a few. He’s a bass icon " as famous for his foot-long beard as he is for his rich, deep-pocketed grooves. Since the ’70s, Lee Sklar has been in constant demand for both studio sessions and live performances. His résumé reads like a Who’s Who. Lee didn’t rise to the top of the bass world by spraying notes all over songs " although he can surely do so when called upon

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
