born in Philadelphia, is an artist to take note of. His signature sound and range, especially on the tenor saxophone, will capture your attention from the very first note he plays. From soul to jazz to fusion to gospel to contemporary popular music, Anthony’s versatile style appeals to a wide range of musical tastes. In 1982, at the age of twenty-one years old, Anthony left James Madison University to pursue his calling as a professional musician, ending up in Northern Virginia with The Sparkplugs. In 1989, he formed his own band. Tony Terry and Clockwork performed contemporary jazz covers and original music. After more than a year of successful dates in and around Washington, D.C., he disbanded Clockwork to pursue freelance work, and to dedicate more of his time to the original music projects, Egypt, and later Double Digit. Anthony's devotion to his craft and his singular style of playing have led to openings for such artists as the Kinks, the Busboys, Steppenwolf, Junior Walker and the All Stars, Denice Williams, Natalie Cole, and Spyro Gyra, among others. He has toured the United States and Europe, shared his talents on recordings with Yasmeen, Double Digit, Anthony Archer, Forte', Manny Fresh, Mel Waiters, Hamilton Loomis, and has performed live with Motown legend El DeBarge. In 1994, he moved to Houston, Texas and is currently working as a successful freelance musician, playing soprano, tenor, and baritone saxes, along with MIDI wind synth, vocals, and now bass guitar. Anthony continues to work with a variety of musical artist and styles all over the country and abroad. In addition to working on his own original music project, he currently performs with The Megatones, The Green Onions, Andrea B., La Raza Connection, Houston icon Yvonne Washington, and Blind Pig recording artist, Hamilton Loomis.

The Jazz Network is exactly what the title suggests, a place where you get to mix and mingle with those who have not only an appreciation for Jazz but a forum to hear new up and coming artists as well. I've hooked up with so many of my old friends that I've lost contact with over the years here and it's been a great place to meet folk, appreciate good music and Musicianship. What an incredible idea!!
Grady Tate began his jazz career as a much-celebrated drummer, backing such icons as Wes Montgomery, Ella Fitzgerald, and Quincy Jones. Tate has since traded in his skins for a microphone at center stage, where he delivers smooth and soulful baritone vocals. With pianist John di Martino, Tate sings "Everybody Loves My Baby" and "Where Do You Start."
He was a soulful reedman, an amazing talent scout for decades and a bandleader of one of the country's most popular acts. Born in 1913, Herman led "Thundering Herds" that were both big draws and well-respected by the likes of Igor Stravinsky. Here are five recordings which still sound fresh today.
