5.0 out of 5 stars yesssssss! August 9, 2012
Format:Audio CD
This cd has it all: Wopat's smoky, husky soulful voice and wonderful interpretations; great arrangements-almost a big band sound in some of the horn arrangements. Lot of great guitar work. Unexpected song choices. (Spinning wheel; ode to billie joe--both kick ass). His cover of joni's Grey rooms is gorgeous, and beautiful piano accompaniment (altho I'd rather hear wayne shorter noodling in the background than malach's uninspired contribution on that tune) wopat's only original tune, thailand sea, sounds like it couldve been written by joni (but hell, you could have worse influences). His treatment of frischberg*'s you'd rather have the blues sounds like he's channeling sammy davis jr with top notes of mel torme. One of my faves is cover of deacon blues. But you could play that on tuba and I'd like it. Seriously, he does a nice job with the lyrics. Conveys a pathos in the song I never felt before. The horn section in the background playing those sweet steely dan chords is a treat And in the penultimate line, joni creeps in. "50 checks" I always skip. 42nd st is a pretty interesting take on that classic; will make you pine for the days before madam tussaud, the creamery, skechers and that travesty of a blues club, bb kings. Natural Man is no Like a Natural Woman but tom does the, like the song says, the best he can. The last tune, "The last night of the year" is a poignant ballad, beautifuuly sung, albeit not swung. If he did a whole album of songs like that, I'd snap it up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tom Wopat CD July 28, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this as a gift for my husband. I try to find music he doesn't already have on cd which means I guess at what he might enjoy but is not necessarily familiar with. We both have come to appreciate different styles of music, but especially the pre-rock n roll big band era--what great music! We heard it growing up, but didn't appreciate it--that was for our parents, old people, and us baby boomers were partial to NEW, DIFFERENT, YOUNG. Never trust anyone over 30, and so forth.....now we realize what great music our parents' listened to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent jazz July 13, 2011
By BPaiva
Format:MP3 Music
Have to admit that I'm a Tom Wopan fan. I have several of his previous CD's.
I love "Consider it Swing". Tom reads lyrics with intelligence and meaning. Some great fresh material song choices. Congrats to the label for putting this out.

Have listened to a song from this album on a local radio station and finally learned who was singing. You Fascinate Me So is a gem and the rest are wonderful, too. Love it. Bought the cd, downloaded the album onto my new Kindle, can't get enough. Great arrangements and a great voice!!
