Wayman Tisdale

Most athletes who moved into the recording business during the '90s found rap to be their forte, but Wayman Tisdale shifted the field to contemporary jazz with his 1995 debut album, Power Forward, recorded for the Motown subsidiary MoJazz. A 1984 Olympic gold medalist in basketball, All-American at the University of Oklahoma, and member of the Phoenix Suns, Tisdale plays bass in his Fifth Quarter Band. He signed with MoJazz in 1995, releasing Power Forward later that year. By 1996, his second album, In the Zone, had appeared; Decisions followed two years later; Face to Face was issued in early 2001. In 2003 the gospel album Presents 21 Days was released, while the next year saw Hang Time. In 2006 Tisdale's seventh record, Way Up!, featuring guest artists Bob James, Dave Koz, and George Duke, among others, came out. In 2007, Tisdale was diagnosed with bone cancer, but he recovered sufficiently to release his eighth album, Rebound, in 2008, featuring a version of Barry White's "Never, Never Gonna Give Ya Up" with country star Toby Keith on vocals. Ultimately, Tisdale passed away on May 15, 2009, at age 44 after battling bone cancer for two years. ~ John Bush & William Ruhlmann, Rovi

God blessed Wayman in so many ways. As an athlete, a musician, a father and friend. Ultimately He blessed Wayman by calling him home. Our loss but certainly Wayman's reward. Wayman, your music lives on!

I met Mr. Tisdale once when I was living in Sacramento, CA, and he was and still is one of the greatest ball player's that the NBA has ever seen. As an artist, this brother was nothing short of awesome. Me personally, I miss him and all of the beautiful music he gave to the world. Rest in peace Mr. Tisdale, you will never be forgotten.

Wayman will be remembered as a gentleman and professional on the court (with one of the sweetest low-post moves) and in the studio (easily one of the best bassist). Thank You for sharing your life with all of us. May God continue to bless your family as he has blessed you.

ESPN 30 for 30 had a phenomenal, but sad, story oh his life. He was a great basketball player, musician, husband, father, and friend. Toby Keith sang a tribute to him called Cryin' For Me. I get chills just thinking abou the lyrics to the song.

Wayman was 10 years younger than me, grew up 30 miles from me, and attended the same university. I watched him grow up as a great basketball player from a wonderful family. I also had the pleasure of meeting him and listening to his amazing musical talent several times. When the world lost Wayman, it felt like I lost a brother. He was a great athlete & musician but a more wonderful man of God. He was one awesome human. I miss him!

He would always perform at the jazz festivals in Detroit an strike an awesome note of solidarity and unity in the audience. On and off the court as I watched this bro, he was magnificent and I do agree, we owe him a tribute to his legacy. May we all live and serve as you did Wayman until we meet again!

My bio father told me years before he passed that I was related to Wayman. I was in the radio industry and unbeknown to me that we were related, he was one of my favorite jazz artist. His soul lives on via Pandora and all of his fans, thanks for supporting my family and peace be with you all.
