Editorial Reviews

The former National Basketball Association superstar, who has over 5,000 rebounds, comes back with his fourth album, and like the title suggests, it is a personal work with some instrumental depth and a varied R&B flavor. The 10-song set starts off slamming with "Loveplay," a track that reveals that the giant electric bass player is gaining more control over his style, and infusing less of the nuances of his musical mentor, Stanley Clarke. From there the album plunges headlong into modern R&B with a contribution from the female vocal trio Out of Eden. Those two tracks tell the tale of this album, as the selections are either well-orchestrated smooth-jazz cuts, superbly coproduced by saxophonist David Mann, or lush vocal tracks, one featuring the former lead singer of the group Surface, Bernard Jackson. And just when Tisdale is finding his own voice on bass, he debuts as a singer on the title track. He serves himself well, but it's not a three-point play. In fact, this album is playing two half-court games--one in the smooth-jazz yard, the other in the grooves of R&B. --Mark Ruffin

5.0 out of 5 stars In your face and heart to stay! August 3, 2002
Format:Audio CD
"Face to Face" puts you in the face of true love... with yourself, your Savior, and your soulmate!
This is a wonderfully flavorful CD, mixing jazz with R&B. I love the smooth jazz tunes and soulful lyrics. As you listen to the smooth sounds of "Brand New" and others, you will be swept away by the confessions of love in "When I Opened Up My Eyes" and "Face to Face". The music creates an atmosphere that will make you wrap your arms around yourself because true love begins within!
Tisdale reveals more love in this project, and you'll love listening to it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Who would have thought February 7, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Who would have thought that the Bass could be sucha terrific lead instrument. Waymon has taken the art to a whole new level. Despite the obvious criticism of the use of such an instrument for the melodic lead, He has done a tremendous job of keeping the groove and not getting in the way of it.
This ablum has kept his trend of grooves that are in the pocket and creative melodic improvisation. He invited one of my all time favorite groups, Out of Eden, to sing on " When I Opened Up My Eyes". The addition of their voices to the already mesmorizing beat made this song, in my opinion, the best song on the album. However, the other contributions are remarkable as well. Songs like " If I Ever" and "Brazilia" will make this album a must have for R&B and Jazz fans alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent CD! Excellent Artist! July 13, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have every Wayman Tisdale CD out and I love all of them. Wayman is a talented musician who is accompanied by talented artists. If you are looking for something nice and mellow to wind down with, I suggest purchasing all of his CD's, press "random play" on your disc player and enjoy! You won't be disappointed!

4.0 out of 5 stars Oh my goodness.......pick it up NOW! April 8, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Wayman Tisdale has taken us to another level. His showmanship and skill say a whole lot but I must say that I'm impressed with what he does by setting a tone of relaxation and comfort. Even the sequence of the songs flow with a melodic order. The entire cd is a gem with no flops or questionable joints on this set. You'll love the smooth sounds of "Brand New" as Wayman wraps his bass around the song and seductively warms you. "Brazilia" is definitely a beautiful and refreshing cut that will have you touching the repeat button. He doesn't stop there. The smooth and properly fitting vocals by Ericka Smith will cause you to unwind and think about the special one. The song doesn't worry you it just croons and rifts sweetly by the subtle lead of Wayman's guitar. Don't walk away from this one because you won't be disappointed. "Face to Face" sounds like Tony Rich on backing vocals...., but it's David Mann riding the song like a new Jaguar on a summer day with the top down! "Can't Hide Love" ......all I can say is that you will simply shake your head at what Mr. Tisdale does with this song! I love it!!!! The boy is cold!!

4.0 out of 5 stars STRONG MOVE TO THE POST! June 28, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Let's face it, Wayman Tisdale was not the greatest power forward in the NBA and only a handful of NBA fan's outside of the Sacramento area probably even remember him. Therefore, unlike Shaq who sells worthless CD's on his name recognition alone, Wayman has had to prove his worth to music fans all over the world. On "Face to Face" Tisdale proves his worth by writing 6 of the 10 songs on the CD in addition to playing some very nice smooth Jazz on his bass. One thing Tisdale has obviously learned as a player is that any modicum of success depends in large part on the team you are playing with. With that understanding, Tisdale has surrounded himself with many fine, talented players. This winning team has helped Tisdale produce a championship quality CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Doing it "Tis"-way. May 15, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This cd is a wonderful addition to Mr. Tisdale's already growing discography. It really showcases his talent in ways that his previous efforts didn't. His writing and vocals allow us to see him as Wayman, not a former NBA star. After watching "On the Record with Bob Costas", I was blown away when Winton Marsalis said that Wayman was the best Athlete turned musician! He doesn't give his praise away to anything not absolutely oozing with artistry and musical beauty! After picking it up, I must say that I see what Mr. Marsalis was referring to. This is a breath of fresh air to the listener that needs it, and a source of musical herbal tea; "smooth urban blend." Get this record!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Strong Work of Art July 7, 2001
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I purchased Wayman's CD on a hunch and I am glad I did. This CD is solid work by a hard working bassist. Wayman bridges the gap as he lays the smooth jazz out. From "When I Opened Up My Eyes" which has a R&B/Zap Band type of style to the track called "Stay" He does it all. I personally like track 4, "Brazilia" which he goes international with a fiesty, groovy, melody. What he does with track 8, "Can't Hide Love" may just be the hit of the entire CD. This CD is strong and just may be the bridge to his best work in the future. Steve Cole worked on several songs in this CD and hopefully Steve will be on Waymans' next CD

5.0 out of 5 stars A FACE TO FACE POINT OF VIEW. August 15, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is my favorite jazz CD, I play it almost everyday. Every song is the bomb. The songs have meaning, and are sung by talented voices. His music has so much rhythm, that you would think it's a regular R&B CD. For those of you who are not into jazz music, this CD will convert you; I'll guarantee it.
