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

I love his music so much, I'm just sorry I just started listening to him four or five months ago. I love his station, his music is so soothing to my spirit!!! RIP, Mr. Tisdale!!!!
The Tisdales are a beautiful and gracious family. We miss you Wayman.
Had the pleasure of seeing him in concert a few times. He brought so much energy to the stage.
He lived to share his music with us what a blessing Sorry for his passing. RQ/rlh

The artist inside the ball player turned musical phenomenon was a light which permeated our thirst for sound in a way which scored points with a similarity much like the way he did on the hardwood. His music kept many a fan at the freethrow line of appreciation and offered all who listened the best seat in the building. Thank you WT, for dribbling the frets and producing championship memories that the ear could appreciate. A true NBA member (Naturally Blessed Artist) !

on. Hang. Time
Check. This. out
You are a dynamic artist
W.T. inspires me and I hope to see him someday. C:-)
I had the opportunity to know this man for a few months as a kid in high school. Such a powerful spirit! I never knew what impact he had (hey, I was young and only cared about myself lol) but now I realize I had a power man of God in my life for such a short time. I am grateful for his entire family and church family at Friendship Baptist. Rest on Mr. Tisdale! Rest on!
A true Artist, you are as well as an athlete. God bestowed many talents on a great man, one of his angels. Love your music Wayman. May you Rest In Peace knowing you touched so many and still do in the many years to come.
love your work Wayman. RIP

Smooooth Jazz... What a great bassist. Gone too soon. RIP
In this song, he makes the bass have most of the lead spots, like a rhythm guitar. Amazing!!!
I only wish that the elements would allow me to impact the world a fraction of the way Wayman did!
jones.st.cro i x
you can say Wayman was a great athlete he was, you can say a was a great jazzman he was, but all you need to know is he was a good man.
Rest in peace my brother I loved everything about you
He is surely missed. What a great bassist. Gone too soon.
shakeda88
He Wii be missed
I put you in an eclectic class with Marcus Miller,Willi a m Bootsy Collins,exce p t the fact that the bass strings just come alive in your imposing presence.REB O U N D was the baddest musical piece ever made with Bob James;Dave Koz,George Duke and Toby Keith. RIP Thunder thumbs,my great baller.
The man was very talented in sports and music.
