    Any of you guys hip to Mr. tisdale? I know you all think of him as the Power Forward of the Phoenix Suns, but he has recorded some good CD's. They are kind of "Smooth Jazzy", but pretty good. He is obviously a Stanley Fan!

    Other opinions?

    You should see the pic of him holding his bass, it would be like me holding a ukulele.

    He plays his basses upside down. I've seen him live once.

    That's gotta hurt! ;)


    (Haslip & Keith Horne do it 'upside-down', too...I've considered trying it once or twice!). ;)

    I have two of his CD's and I like them. The remark about being a Stanley Clarke fan IMHO is right on. While he cites Marcus Miller as a mentor, I think it sounds a lot more along the lines of Stanley (who is also cited as an influence.)
    Good listening regardless.
