Wayman Tisdale, who died today at age 44, left behind a music legacy in addition to a sports one. Long after his basketball career, Wayman Tisdale put aside his days in the NBA and made room for his talent as a jazz bassist.

The son of a baptist minister, Tisdale often included inspiration gospel music, some of which were collaborations, including “Grateful” with Marvin Sapp, which is on Tisdale’s Rebound project. He also worked with Jonathan Butler on “Sunday Best,” which was on his 2006 CD Wayman Tisdale – Way Up. Tisdale also released 21 days, an all-gospel music project in 2003.

He had many more amazing jazz and gospel albums left to create. He left us way too soon.
