With his classic warm and mellow baritone, Grady Tate has twice been nominated for the Best Male Vocalist Grammy Award--the first for "Windmills of Your Mind" from the film The Thomas Crown Affair, and the second for the 1980s ballad "She's Out of My Life." Yet to many jazz lovers, Tate may be better known as drummer for Duke Ellington, the Count Basie Orchestra, and the Billy Taylor Trio. Urged by none other than Peggy Lee to pursue his singing, Tate is now praised for his impeccable timing and profound grasp of lyrics. He's been heralded by the Village Voice as "the best singer to emerge from the ranks of instrumentalists since Nat Cole."
