He laid down crisp, rim shot-laden beats for artists like Wes Montgomery and Jimmy Smith, sowing Soul Jazz seeds that sprouted into the current Acid Jazz phenomena.
Grady Tate, 76, is best known as one of the most beloved, consistently dependable session drummers since the 1960s. He's the steady pulse on the famous version of Benny Golson's "Killer Joe," from Quincy Jones' Walking in Space (Verve, 1969), where his hi-hat groove and snare drum rim shots on the four, in tandem with bassist Ray Brown's big-toned walking, formed the backdrop for the head and solos by Hubert Laws and Freddie Hubbard. Grady Tate is a genial and generous man, with an impish sense of humor. Key in on that person, not to sound exactly like them, but to get the essence of their feeling. Like Peggy Lee, she'd go and I'd think: Where did she get that from? She was soulful.
