Hard bop and soul drummer and vocalist Grady Tate has recorded as both a sideman and leader.

He moved to new York City from his native Durham, North Carolina in 1963 and joined Quincy Jones's band.

Tate's drumming helped to define the hard bop sound heard on classic Jimmy Smith and Wes Montgomery Verve LPs of the 1960s.

During the 1970s he was the drummer with the "The Tonight Show" band for six years and a member of the "New York Jazz Quartet."

His most recognizable vocal performances are the songs "I Got Six", "Naughty Number Nine", and "Fireworks", all part of the Schoolhouse Rock animated educational series.

Grady Tate has been a member of the factuality at Howard university since 1989.
