Following his appearance in the award winning Broadway show "A Trip To Bountiful, Tom Wopat, star of stage, screen and TV has resumed his national touring in conjunction with his latest critically acclaimed album "I've Got Your Number."
The album, originally released in digital and CD formats in Feb. was recently released in a limited edition, special deluxe vinyl edition and 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.
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! "
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."
