The latest edition of Jazzed and Blue: Profiles in Blues and Jazz is now available for download at Rockwired.com and features music and an exclusive interview with Broadway and television veteran Tom Wopat (The Dukes of Hazard). In this opening segment, Wopat discusses his forthcoming release 'Consider it Swung,' working with producer and bassist David Finck and plans for future recordings. The second half of this edition of Jazzed and Blue will feature music from such jazz and blues artists as Le Verroneau, Jane Badler, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Curtis Stigers, The Dangling Success, Marilyn Mcleod, K.K. Martin, Victor Wainwright and the Wildroots and Rod Piazza and the All Mighty Flyers. “Listeners have really taken a liking to the free form segment of the show and quite honestly so have I." says Jazzed and Blue host Brian Lush. “It's a real treat to end a long week with a show like this and to kick back and listen to some great music."

Tom Wopat is preparing to release his brand-new jazz album, Consider It Swung on August 9th. The record is a swingin' collection of standards featuring Wopat and some of the best jazz musicians New York City has to offer, including Tedd Firth (piano), Peter Grant (drums), David Finck (bass), and Bob Malach (sax).The album shows an incredible variety of material and unique adaptations, all done in Wopat's unmistakable style. Highlights include an upbeat, swing adaptation of Gershwin's “But Not For Me," a rollicking version of Blood, Sweat and Tears “Spinning Wheel, “ a smooth and touching version of Joni Mitchell's “Two Grey Rooms," and a new jazzy style for Bobbie Gentry's “Ode To Billie Joe." The album also includes exclusives originals, including “Thailand Sea," which Wopat wrote after being inspired by the gorgeous surroundings that he experienced while on set a few years ago, and “50 Checks," an outtake from the Broadway musical Catch Me If You Can.
