Leland Sklar, Session Bassist

Lee Sklar has has over 2000 albums to his credit,. 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, George Strait, Willie Nelson, Steven Curtis Chapman, Nils Lofgren, Lisa Loeb, among may many others.

His television and motion picture credits are also extensive and include playing for such shows as Hill Street Blues, Knight Rider, Simon and Simon, and also on many motion pictures, including Forrest Gump, Ghost, Kindergarten Cop, and My Best Friend's Wedding.

In the late '60s, after completing his education at California State University - Northridge, Sklar met James Taylor and they started playing together. When Taylor's "Fire and Rain" became a huge hit record, Sklar's career began to gain steam.

Over the years Sklar has worked with nearly all of the top session players, but joining with drummer Russ Kunkel , guitarist Dan Kortchmar, and keyboardist Craig Doerge, the quartet would come to be known as the Section. The Section recorded three of their own albums between 1972 and 1977.
