Bio / info
Alan Skidmore (born Alan Richard James Skidmore, 21 April 1942, London) is a tenor saxophonist of jazz and blues music, son of the saxophonist Jimmy Skidmore. Skidmore began his professional career at 16 and early in his career toured with comedian Tony Hancock. In the mid to late 60s he worked with John Mayall's Bluesbreakers and Ronnie Scott's group. In the 70s, he was part of Keith Tippett's jazz fusion bigband project Centipede and worked – among others – with Soft Machine, The Nice, Graham Collier, Brotherhood of Breath, Mike Gibbs, Elton Dean, Kate Bush and Curved Air. He has since played with many other musicians in blues and jazz, including Chick Corea, Alexis Korner, Georgie Fame, and the Van Morrison band.
