Grady Tate - A Great Jazz Vocalist

"Grady Tate is probably better known as a self-taught session jazz drummer appearing in the album credits and liner notes of many recordings during the 60's. During that time it was not uncommon for record companies to dabble with placing an artist in front of a microphone to interpret popular songs of the day. Witness gawd-awful records by William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, the guy from Mission Impossible, the little kid from the Rifleman, Leorne Greene, etc.You cannot lump the talents of Grady Tate into such a mix. His hip rendition of "And I Love Her" is only a glimpse of range and depth to be found on the rest of the record. I have all of Grady Tate's records on Skye & Buddah. Windmills of my Mind, is as good a place as any to begin. And, if you can find the follow up album, "Feeling Life" - pick it up too!"
A lost treasure!

"After listening to Sting sing, Windmills Of My Mind, I remembered when I first heard this way back in the day of 1969 or 1970..like i said back in the day...I own the original LP, but who has a turntable these days? I was so delighted to find it at Amazon...This cd is smooth JAZZ at its finest, especially Sack Full Of Dreams...a smooth, mellow tune that sets your mind to daydreaming. This lost treasure is a cool addition for a jazz library."
Overall an excellent album .

"The song "And I love her" is fantastic. the drumming and the clarinets really get your blood rushing. the humming is a real soul touching experience that makes you hum right along.I can't get enough of the drum and clarinets. The rest of the tunes are also good, but the afford said mentioned selection is worth the price of the whole album."
