I'm a Smooth Jazz Guitarist. My first debut CD was out in 2003 and it went Chartbound on the Smoothjazz.com for 10 weeks. I've been a side man for years and now it's time for me to step out once again. You've heard me on the Number 1 single Billboard & Smoothjazz.com and Grammy winning song "Morning" with George Benson & Al Jarreau "Givin' It Up" CD and also on the single "Ordinary People". I'm on Marion Meadows CD "Dressed To Chill" (6 on Smoothjazz.com & 4 on Billboard), I play on 8 songs "Dress To Chill" guitar rhythm & solo, "Remember Me"-rhythm guitar, "Dance With My Daughter", "Miss Know It All", "Bounce", "Just My Style", "1000 Dreams", "To Love Her". I'm playing Flugelhorn and guitar on "Coco Flow" too! I'm also on Marion Meadow's "Players Club"- rhythm & solo on that tune, "Sweet Grapes", "Suede", "Diggable"-rhythm & solo, "Step A Little Closer" -rhythm & solo, "Deska"-rhythm guitar, "After 6". I've now finished my second CD called "Feelin' It". I have Nelson Rangell on sax, Najee on sax, Walter Beasley on sax, Michael Lington on sax, Luis Conte on percussion, and my wife Evelyn "Champagne" King on lead vocals on "Happy Feelings"!, Alex Al on bass, Mel Brown on bass, Michael White on drums, Michael Broening ..s, and also produced and co-wrote two songs ("Stilll Lovin' You" and "No U Turn", etc... Darren Rahn mixed one song "Just 4 U" co-written with Preston Glass. So I'm back for my second time around! Calling me a new-comer or undiscovered would be an egregious mistake. I'm born in Tennessee, Berklee College Of Music educated, So Cal bred (at least for the past 20 years)… Tours with names you know (Atlantic Starr, Jennifer Holliday, Vesta Williams, Eric Benet, Rose Royce, Sheila E, and my wife, Evelyn “Champagne” King, Michel Polnareff (France), Michael Lington) and albums from equally famous folk (Walter Beasley, Warren Hill, Curtis Stigers, Najee, Michael Lington, Marion Meadows, Evelyn "Champagne" King, George Benson). None of this would mean a thing, though, if my new project weren’t such an outstanding sophomore effort. These days it takes something special to really perk up our ears here in SmoothJazzland. And I've delivered just that! Fact is, I get it! I know what works for Smooth Jazz right now. This one’s a slam dunk, one fashionable track right after the other. So what’s left? You must hear it! * See it * Experience " Freddie Fox" the gentle southern man.

Love your new CD "Feelin' It"!!! definitely smooth jazz ready...It's good to see you step back into the spotlight. I've known about your bacup and session work for a long time. Keep it going, and you will rewrite the smooth jazz format.
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.
Hear passionate improvisation across borders on Colombian harp, Argentinian bandoneón, Venezuelan cuatro and vibes from the U.S. In a set with Castañeda, his trio and special guests perform at the Americas Society in New York.
Ever since he started becoming one of the best alto saxophone players in the world, Zenón has drawn from his upbringing in Puerto Rico. But, like many Puerto Ricans, Zenón lives in New York — where his quartet of 10 years has finally been invited to play the Vanguard. It presents new music in concert.
