Performs in Conjunction with His Latest Critically Acclaimed Album I'VE GOT YOUR NUMBER



Tom Wopat, star of stage, screen and TV will perform in support of his latest critically-acclaimed recording I've Got Your Number. Originally released in February of 2013 in digital and CD formats, a limited edition, deluxe vinyl edition was recently made available. The album pays homage to the big band '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. The hand-numbered limited vinyl edition also includes 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.



The past year 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" with Cicely Tyson. Since its release, I've Got Your Number, has been the recipient of much critical acclaim from media outlets such as the Huffington Post, Jazziz, All Music Guide, USA Today, Examiner, 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."
