LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 30, 2013) - Tom Wopat, star of stage, screen and TV has released a limited edition, special deluxe vinyl edition of his latest critically acclaimed album, "I've Got Your Number." The album, originally released in digital and CD formats in Feb. pays homage to the 'Mad Men' era, with Wopat performing classics from the Great American Songbook and contemporary songs from artists such as Paul Simon, Bruce Springsteen, James Taylor -- transforming them into jazz-tinged renditions. In this limited edition, Wopat's legions of fans will have the opportunity to purchase one of the hand-numbered, double 180-gram vinyl, that also include the bonus tracks "That's Life" and Tom's original song "Thailand Sea," plus in-studio photos and personal notes from producer David Finck and Tom.
2013 has been a banner year for Wopat in all areas of entertainment; including the feature film, "Django Unchained," and most recently the award-winning Broadway show "A Trip to Bountiful." "I've Got Your Number," has been the recipient of much critical acclaim from media outlets notably the Huffington Post, Jazziz, All Music Guide, USA Today, Times Square Chronicles, and many more. With a 30-piece orchestra and stellar arrangements by Tedd Firth, Henry Hay and John Oddo, the album is a true nod to the orchestra/big band hybrid of the '60s and '70s. "It is only fitting that we release this album on vinyl," states Tom. "We've evoked the spirit of the New York supper club era and the cool vibe of the Mad Men days when vinyl recordings were supreme!"
What the critics are saying:
"Wopat has successfully reinvented himself as a compelling jazz crooner." - Mark Holston, Jazziz
"Meeting Across the River, Tom Wopat -- it seems an unlikely pairing of artist and song, but the Broadway-cabaret performer delivers a felt, unsentimental reading of Springsteen's haunting gem." - Elysa Gardner, USA Today Top 10 Playlist
With "I've Got Your Number" Tom truly feels he has found his stride. "Performing these songs the way we do on this recording is the most creative thing I do," Wopat concludes. "It's extremely satisfying and fulfilling. And as long as it feels that way, I'm going to keep right on doing it."
