Fresh off the heels of his 2016 best-selling book: The Full Tank Life: Fuel Your Dreams-Ignite Your Destiny, the Godfather of Gospel Jazz Ben Tankard is back with the third installment of his Stellar Award winning FULL TANK album series.
His new FULL TANK 3: CanTANKerous album features an all-star cast of special guests including multi-award winning saxophonist Gerald Albright, guitarist Phil Hughley, saxophonist Cord Martin, Grammy® award winning group Take-6 and song contributions from Judith Christie McAllister, Faith Hill and Sean P-Diddy Combs and Sting.
“It is super tough carving out time to be in the studio to record when you have reality TV cameras around you all day, but I have to say this record was a fun and rewarding experience,” says the Grammy®, Dove, SoulTrain awarded artist, producer and Reality TV Dad. “I am especially excited about my gospel instrumental rendition of ‘Like The Dew’ featuring Gerald Albright on sax.”
“I am also excited about my Smooth jazz single “Remember Wayman” which I wrote and produced in honor of my old NBA buddy and Smooth jazz artist the late Wayman Tisdale.”
Tankard again gives Jazz and Gospel music fans a stunning album of soothing originals, worshipful favorites and groovin’ arrangements of Urban music favorites. FULL TANK 3: CanTANKerous is available in Walmart and Target stores and online everywhere Friday, May 12. The album is released by Tankards’ label Ben-Jamin’ Universal Music with distribution from Central South Distribution.
Whether serving locally with pastoral duties at their thriving church The Destiny Center, shooting the next reality TV show season with his wife Jewel and their wonderfully wild, wacky and adventurous blended family, to piloting his airplane across the country to speak and play concerts, you can rest assured that the Tankards will always live life on a FULL TANK!
