Tom Wopat marks new album with NYC signing, October concert on West Coast

There's some news on the music front for Tom Wopat, our own Luke Duke of "The Dukes of Hazzard." We've got the word from the Wopat Web Crew ...

Tom Wopat's brand-new jazz album "Consider It Swung" will be released on August 9! The record is a swingin’ collection of standards featuring Wopat and some of the best jazz musicians New York City has to offer, all done in Tom's unmistakable style. You can preorder the album now and get a signed copy in the  Wopat Webstore. If you would prefer a digital copy, the album is already up on iTunes - just click here to download it now.

You can get a free preview of "Consider It Swung." Just click here to download the original song, "Thailand Sea."

Wopat says, "A few years ago I was filming a movie in Thailand, and the production put me up in a gorgeous hotel overlooking the sea. During my free time, I used to sit and look at at the ocean, and the view was just exquisite. The local folks there got around on what were called 'longboards' -- about 20-foot boats with a car engine strapped to them, and they maneuvered with a long prop that extended into the ocean. Sitting there and seeing this completely different way of life in such an outrageously beautiful setting became the basis for writing 'Thailand Sea.'"

To mark the release of the album, Wopat will be appearing at a NYC Barnes and Noble location. Mark your calendars and come out to see Tom perform three songs live, plus do some signing and talking with fans:

Tuesday, August 9
4:30 p.m. EST
Barnes & Noble
150 E. 86th Street (at Lex)
New York, NY

Also, Wopat will be performing with Linda Eder on October 29 and 30 in Southern California. Learn more at the Events page.
