Big fella can PLAY!! I have been a fan since the beginning. This release is...I can hardly find the words. I have always loved Wayman's personal touch like in "My Son (A Song for Bubba)" , then there's the fact that he has Jeff Lorber playing on "Shape of Your Heart" and "If You Want Me To Stay". But my absolute favorite on this CD is "Sweet Dreams" featuring Eric Benet. I must have played it 1000 times - in a row!

Do yourself a favor, listen and buy!!

Wayman just keeps getting better and better. I think another thing that is so endearing about him is his personality permeates his projects so that one immediately feels most comfortable with him.

Here it is no different. He has a wonderful song for his son some great remixes of older hits and, of course, his dedication to his maker - something he has done on all his projects. As a matter of fact, one of the highlights of all his projects is his interpretation of a religious-themed project.

This is time he is joined by the likes of Jeff Lorber and George Duke. Just doesn't get much better than that.

This is indeed another eeeeeeeeexcellent cd by Wayman that you will definitely enjoy over and over again. The guy just exudes good vibes and when you listen to his music, that just heightens the musical experience.

Good project - good people - worthy addition to any music collection.

Having been away from the NBA floor for some years now, Wayman Tisdale continues on with the other love of his life...music. He's chalked up one successful album after another in his musical career. His first album Power Forward was well received, along with his follow-ups In The Zone, Decisions, and his chart-topping album Face To Face in 2001. After being drafted to Rendezvous Records by the label's founder Dave Koz, Tisdale released 2004's Hang Time. Now Tisdale presents the jazz world with some of his best work to date with Way Up. Working with well-known singers and musicians in the industry gives Tisdale the all-star power that other contemporary jazz artists can only dream of having on their team.

Wayman's best work has to be a cover of Kool And The Gang's "Get Down On It." One of my favorites on the album include my hometown hero Eric Benet showcasing his signature crooning on "Sweet Dreams." Jeff Lorber helps out on the tracks "It Was A Good Day" with Tom Braxton and "Shape Of Your Heart." Kirk Whalum does double duty with his saxaphone for a cover of Sly and the Family Stone's "If You Want Me To Stay" in addition to joining up with Jonathan Butler to offer up their best for "Sunday's Best." George Duke lends a hand on "Tell It Like It Is" while Bob James makes his rounds on "Conversation Peace." And of course Wayman shows off on "My Son (song for Bubba)" with help from his commander-in-chief Dave Koz.

Way Up is one of those albums that just do it for you. It's not your typical jazz album that is just good the first time you hear it. Way Up will definitely stand the test of time when you play it for the 100th time 2 years from now. Wayman Tisdale was a standout NBA player back in the day, but now he's a standout bass player making a name for himself in a whole new arena.

On this C.D. the vibe that really caught my attention was "Get Down On It. An Old Goldie but goodie but sure to make you get down on it. Along with the soothing song "Glory Glory" to bring you back after that zestful dance you just had. In all this is a very good Jazz-funk instrumental album. Buy !

Wayman - struck gold with this one, when I first heard it. I put money on it with my brothers, told them, "Tiz-Is-gonna win a Grammy for this one". I think maybe the reason is re-working songs like " 02 Get Down on it" gets you on it and in the groove right now. And "If you want me to Stay" Sly and the Family Stone, come off it, it's over the top. As if that wasn't enough he's got Jeff Lorber playing in most of it. I never get tired of listening to this CD. Every track is great. No it's not Stanley Clark, but in my mind.....It's exactly what you want to hear when you hear it. Just buy it, you'll see. Thanks Wayman!!
