Bassist Wayman Tisdale loves the old songs. Look for two classics on his upcoming CD Hang Time.
Bassist Wayman Tisdale will continue his love affair with classic old-school songs on his new CD, Hang Time, his first for Dave Koz�s Rendezvous Entertainment. The first single on the Tulsa, Oklahoma, resident�s upcoming CD, which is due July 13, will be a cover of McFadden and Whitehead�s �Ain�t No Stoppin� Us Now.� Tragically, the writer of that song, John Whitehead, was murdered in Philadelphia last week. Tisdale also covers Smoky Robinson�s �Crusin�.�
Tisdale scored a No. 1 hit on the smooth-jazz charts on his last CD, Face to Face, with a cover of "Can't Hide Love" by Earth, Wind and Fire.
Tisdale is part of Koz�s third annual A Smooth Summer Night tour, which begins June 5 and features Koz, singer Jeffrey Osborne and guitarist Jonathan Butler. Trumpeter Rick Braun joins the tour on June 25.
