Contributing to over 2000 albums and numerous other musical projects, Lee Sklar’s presence in the bass world has been widely felt and enormously enjoyed.
With Lee pushing 70 this year, being as active as ever, I am looking forward to hearing him soon in a venue nearby.
Lee’s basslines have been pivotal in my own musical growth since I was a kid. His choices have influenced my revisiting a piece of music repeatedly. The subtle, precise way he has chosen to colour songs is, in my opinion, one of the main reasons these songs have become hits.
Yet, as is often the case, Lee, the consummate bassist, has kept a low profile in the back and you might not have realized he was there… simply Google his discography and body of work and you will get my drift.
Without further delay, I am immensely pleased to share our video cover interview with the ever-transcending pillar of the bass world, Leland Sklar!
