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

good dude, the only person i ever seen with a brighter smile than Magic Johnson, rest in peace brother. I cried that day when i heard the news, tearing up now.
i rushed to a Va Mall to hear him play live. That was the first time I heard that brother play they tore the building down you hear me they blew the place down. Thanks for our introduction to each other Tis , you and the band to blew my wife and my mind that day. Love you Bro see you on the other side.
He. Was. One. Cool. Bro. He was too cool. Later W.T
Yes, Wayman is missed. But when we cross in to Glory, we have the assurance that we will once again see our brother in Christ standing with that great big smile next to our Lord and saviour Jesus the Christ. If you do not know Jesus as your lord and Saviour, now is the time for you to ask him into your life. Get right with God in your heart, mind, and your living. Not only will you see Wayman once again, you will have an eternity of Paradise with the one who love's you so much he gave his li
Nice comments, by all. Just curious, so what y'all think about Brother Tisdale's Fonk Record, where he collaborates with the likes of George Duke, George Clinton, his horn section affectionate l y referred to as The Suckers and countless others? I stumbled upon this piece and being as much a Funkateer as I am a Jazz lover, I think Tis NAILED THIS PROJECT!!! So I would love to read what my fellow Tisdale Fans think of this under rated project. Thumbs up? Thumbs Down? What's your favorite?
Seems like the good ones leave way too soon...beaut i f u l music and he'll be forever missed and loved by his fans
Wayman, Wayman, Wayman...... . . . . . . . . . . . .
:-) :-) :-) :'(:'(:'(:-) :-) :-)
Miss your smile, it was as big as your music nothing in the world like it
RIP Mr Wayman Tisdale
