David Finck with associate producers Tom Wopat and Tedd Firth produced Tom Wopat: I've Got Your Number on the LML Music label.
The release opens with the title track, I've Got Your Number, written by Cy Coleman and Carolyn Leigh, and with its samba-rhythm feel and catchy lyrics, it will have you taking your special someone in your arms and dancing them around the floor.
Tom slows the pace with the Sacha Distel and Jack Reardon song, The Good Life, which has some exceptional solo work by Bob Malach on tenor saxophone, then segues into the Bruce Springsteen song, Meeting Across The River, which he makes his own with an arrangement and a piano solo by Henry Hey.
Talented stage, screen, television actor, and singer, Tom also shows his prowess as a songwriter with his beautiful compositions, Summer Dress where the lyrics captivate and evoke memories with, "... She knows how to handle me, I must confess, When she comes to greet me wearing nothing but a smile, And that summer dress ...;" and I Still Feel That Way, which features a solo by Aaron Heick on alto saxophone.
Next in the line-up, is the classic Johnny Burke and Harry Warren song, Devil May Care; followed by the ballad, The Folks Who Live On The Hill, written by Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein.
Tom segues into Call Me written by Tony Hatch with a trumpet solo by Greg Gisbert, and I Won't Dance, written by Dorothy Fields, Oscar Hammerstein 2nd, Otto Harbach, Jerome Kern, and Jimmy McHugh.
Other great tracks include the Judy Collins song Since You've Asked, Born To Be Blue written by Mel Torme and Robert Wells, Secret of Life written by James Taylor and featuring a solo by David Finck on bass, Bruce Hornsby's, Here We Are Again, and The Afterlife written by Paul Simon.
