Tom was able to take the opportunity to launch his new CD, Il Divino, named because that is what Giovanni, the proprietor of Marabini's, calls Tom.
Sylvia later said "Super night again at Marabini’s, great selection of material and great audience participation. Gold was particularly mad with that group at the back of the restaurant (joining in)! Giovanni’s not wrong though – Il Divino is certainly a title you are well worthy of.
Your new CD was well worth the wait and contains a brilliant cross section of differing song types. As you are probably aware there is one track in particular that still continues to reduce me to tears. No prizes though for guessing which one that is."
Tom is back at Marabini's this Saturday, 10th November, 2012.
For those interested in seeing him perform in Eldon Square, another date has been booked today. Tom will be there between 2pm and 6pm on 27th November 2012. Don't forget to check all Tom's public gigs can be found here.
This new offering has more of the "pop op", together with swing and pop. There are also a couple of duets. The first is with local radio presenter Anna Foster - All I Ask Of You from Phantom of the Opera, is just beautiful. Tom also sings Me and My Shadow with local singer Pete Brown, the pair of them clearly having fun whilst performing together.
Tom said "The new CD is so named because it is what Giovanni, owner of Marabini's in Morpeth has called me since I started singing for him! Giovanni really loves the more operatic part of my repertoire. That said, there is a variety of genre here, from Pop Op to Musical Theatre to Swing, Pop and Rock - genuinely something for everyone! But then, when I am booked to sing at functions I am often asked for the full range of my repertoire, as people love to listen to the more classical material early on, and then later like to get up for a dance. I can cover all this, and this is reflected in this new CD"
The first place you can buy Tom's CD will be at Marabini's this Saturday 3rd November, 2012.
We will hopefully have a date when it will be available fairly soon now.
The race is on now, to get everything ready to produce the CD in time for Christmas. Watch this space for more news soon!
No hints here yet as to what will be on the new CD, or what it will be called yet. There will be one or two surprises though, and we can say that where crescendo featured a high proportion of Musical Theatre songs, his new CD doesn't!
