My delivery came today. The CD - 13 tracks only have 1 previously unreleased track..SLAM DUNK (track 10) as I have everything else Wayman did..no surprises here!!! Although I love each track, several would not have been my choices to reflect Wayman's music or the personal touch to "his" music (but I'm sure someone closer to WT made these decisions so..it is what it is).

I bought this project for the DVD which ought to win an award for the documentary nature of it. I had the pleasure of meeting and hanging with Wayman several times over the last few years of his life but I was not more than an acquaintance ...but those who KNEW Wayman and what I observed was his infectious smile and love for life. Unfortunately his cancer battle prevailed and I believe he is with God in heaven. Til then, I have his music reflected in this project (certainly worthy of your 1st purchase) and for those like me who own most if not all of his other music projects...an inspiring DVD story telling the many gifts God gave Wayman and the many lives he impacted!!!

Just watched the trailer for the documentary on Wayman Tisdale. Featuring interviews with Michael Jordan, A. C. Green, and Wayman himself before his tragic death, the film looks as if it's captured the spirit, joy and legacy of one of basketball's and jazz's great contemporary figures. Wayman is gone, but thanks to this DVD/CD he will never be forgotten.

I am a big smooth jazz fan, and had the pleasure of cruising on the Smooth Jazz Cruise with Wayman Tisdale at least twice. As an avid follower of his music, I was fortunate to have taken in his last concert in Clearwater, FL, one week before his sudden death. When I saw that this CD/DVD was being produced, I knew it had to be part of my Wayman collection.

The music on the CD is great! If you follow artists, they have their own 'identity", and this was true of Wayman's music. I could tell he was playing bass lead in one or two notes, without even looking at the list of performers on a CD. For the first few days, I found myself listening to the CD over and over again. The DVD shows Wayman throughout his life -- from high school, college and pro basketball, to his music career as a wonderful jazz bass/guitar player. He always had such a big smile on his face, and that wasn't for show. It was genuine. Wayman lived life to his fullest, enjoying every moment. That was evident in all the things that he did in life, and the DVD catches him at very poignant points throughout his life -- always with that big smile. If you are a smooth jazz lover, and enjoyed listening to Wayman's music, this is a must have! Just make sure you have the tissues handy when you watch the DVD.

Toby Keith's tribute to Wayman "Crying for Me", says that he's going to miss that smile..... RIP, Wayman, we'll all miss that smile, but your wonderful music will live on forever!

This is a fitting tribute to an absolutely woooooooooonderful musician. I have reviewed most of his work, all of which, are top-caliber. This more or less greatest hits package chronicles some of the best of Wayman with the cover capturing his signature smile. His cool, smooth persona is easily captured in his music. This set also includes some new tunes with George Duke, a hot, hot cut, "Slam Dunk" (very apropos as Wayman was also a basketball player with the Sacramento Kings) with none other than Jeff Lorber, an eeeeeeeeeeexcellent reworking of "Rebound" with David Koz and includes glorious hits of his like Gabrielle and, of course a tribute to his maker, "Glory, Glory." I generally reviewed all of his works and forgot to review the project before this one, the Funk Album which is truly deep!! (check out "Every Now and Then" and "Neck Bones!!"

The set ends with a poignant goodbye very nicely done by Toby Keith.

This is yet another reminder of the awesome talent of Wayman Tisdale. Yes, he will be SORELY missed.

Can't wait to get the CD for a Xmas present (hint, hint!!) as I understand there is DVD material that diehard Tisdale fans will truly cherish.

I hiiiiiiiiighly recommend.

If you're into the legend and love the musical works of Wayman Tisdale, this is a must have. From the hardwood of the court to becoming a bassist playing up and down the wooden neck of left handed upside down bass guitar.
This is truly a bargain as you get the CD of Wayman's music and the DVD that chronicles is his life and legacy from childhood to his last days, through triumph and tribulation.
This really means a lot to me as Wayman was the bass player at Mount Olive MBC where I used to attend and I followed him even with the Pacers. I was going to his concert at the Indianapolis Art Museum that was subsequently cancelled due to his fall that revealed his health issue. He never got to return to Indy to bless us with his music.

I knew of Wayman Tisdale as a basketball player and musician, but I did not know the full scope of this amazing human beings life, contributions and journey. This CD/DVD set is one of the most beautiful and inspirational you will ever possess. Share this with your teenage children and they will be motivated to reach their potential and weather the storms of life. Wayman Tisdale rests in peace with his father in heaven, but his legacy remains with us in his music and testimony.
