It’s impossible to do justice in a brief note to the career of bassist Len Skeat, The Time Lord. Early in his career he was a key member of the great Ted Heath Orchestra and Stephane Grappelli’s group; he has toured and recorded with many of the top Americans, famously being Peggy Lee’s favourite bassist; his record in collecting British Jazz Awards in remarkable. In many different roles, from anchoring all-star bands to accompanying soloists with swing and subtlety, he has been a part of the Birmingham Jazz Festival for many years.
