Dribbling to center stage!

"From the basketball court to the stage, Wayman Tisdale dazzles his audience with his musical talent. "Power Forward" is not just a position on the court, it is an amazing debut masterpiece that illuminates the Power that comes from the Creator of talents.Tisdale performs tributes to his Lord ("Amazing Grace), family ("Gina Kay" and "Gabrielle"), and sports fans ("After the Game"). These jazz tunes will entice listeners to get up from the stands to celebrate life and love!"
This is by far one of my favorite albums
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In my mind, the greatest thing about this album is the expressions of shock it generates when people hear it for the first time. It cracks me up to play it for people, particularly those with negative stereotypical views of athletes. All of the tracks show a depth of perception for emotionally moving melody, that is only found in the greats, like Marcus Miller, Gerald Albright and others. What makes a song stand the test of time is a simple, sharp hook, and Wayman Tisdale delivers big time in that area. So he's not as technically proficient as Stanley Clark or John Patitucci(yet). So what? He clearly has what it takes to move people. And ultimately, that's what music is for. Wayman is sure to become one of the leaders in contemporary jazz."
There just ain't no better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Wayman Tisdal is the best jazz artist out there. There just ain't no better. His music and style is unlike anything else I"ve ever heard. It's relaxing, but,for those of us who like the more urban sound, it's pleasing to the ear. I've been looking for other artists who sound anything like he does, but haven't found one yet. I think he should be teaching jazz, not just playing it. I own all three of his cd's. There's a song on them for every mood you could be in. I think his down-to-earthness is what keeps me listening. It's almost like one of my friends wrote the songs. Wayman is cold-blooded. When is he gonna make another one?!?!?!?!?!?!?1?!"
