Steven Golub & Uncharted Territory / Bio

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 five 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, Irridium, B.B. King's, 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 NuBlue, Desmond's Tavern 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." Steven Golub and Uncharted Territory have just released their debut album, "Tenor Centric Universe," consisting of 11 original compositions spanning the full range of jass, from bob to blues to bossa nova, to fusion to sambas to callypso to free jazz.
