Tenor saxophonist Steven Golub- the leader of the innovative progressive jazz group "Uncharted Territory," brings an exciting and innovative sound that captures the rich history of the instrument. Steve mixes a variety of styles and genres in his playing, including jazz, blues and R&B and funk, in a unique manner. His virtuosity on the tenor saxophone is manifested through a four octave range, and ability to play in all styles and tempos, from lush expressive ballads, to super up-tempo pieces. While best known for his creative improvisational skills as a soloist, Steve is also a skilled site reader, equally comfortable playing in a horn section, or as the lone wind instrument in a group. Steven Golub is a talented composer who has written many pieces that cover the spectrum from hard bop to blues to free jazz and smooth jazz. Steve has performed at many well known past and present New York City area clubs including Terra Blues, Manny’s Car Wash, Chicago Blues, Wetlands, the Village Gate, the Blue Note, Arthur’s Tavern, the Woolworth Tower Kitchen, University of the Streets, Goodbye Blue Monday, LaMatta's, P & G Bar, Mojo Lounge, the Angry Squire, the Attic Lounge, Don Pedro's, the Woods, Drom, Shrine World Music Venue, Somethin' Jazz Club and countless others. For many years, he was the featured soloist with the band the "Pioneers," lead by the late great singer Moe Holmes. He has lead a number of straight ahead jazz groups including the "Steven Golub Quartet," the "White Shoe Duo," and more recently, the progressive jazz group, "Uncharted Territory," along with Chilean pianist, Francisco Monroy. He has appeared as a member of a number of local groups including the "Bond Street Jazz Experiment," "Africussion," and the "Naked Woman Project" and has been involved in studio projects with numerous artists including Keith Lambeth and Pomatic and Key. He has performed at events hosted by Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton and was featured on the television show "Blues in the Night," along with Moe Holmes. Steven Golub has been, humorously, referred to as the "greatest saxophonist you never heard of."

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.

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.
