Smooth Jazz Bassist Wayman Tisdale has died at the age of 44. Wayman passed away today (May 15) after a long battle with cancer. In early 2007, doctors discovered a cancerous growth in his right knee and he underwent chemotherapy. In August of 2008, Wayman had the lower part of his right leg amputated. Our sincere condolences go out to Wayman’s family – his wife Regina and his four children – Danielle, Tiffany, Wayman Jr., and Gabriel.
