New Recordings From Tom

Hey everybody, I have a new recording.  It’s a live duet recording with the fine singer Meschiya Lake that was recorded in March at Chickie Wah Wah and released in time for festival season.  We’ve been doing this gig for a couple years and have a good chemistry; she’s a special talent.  “Meschiya Lake and Tom McDermott” is available from the Louisiana Music Factory.

More news: music legend Van Dyke Parks (a fabled name in the music biz going back to the ’60s) will be issuing a best-of-McDermott CD soon on his Bananastan label. “Bamboula” will feature one Gottschalk tune, two Joplin rags from my Brazilian-jazz “Choro do Norte” album, and 13 McDermott originals. The selections -all culled from my CDs of the last 15 years- show off my interest in Brazilian Choro, Early Tango, and French Musette. I’m thrilled to be involved with Van Dyke, and look forward to concertizing with him later this year. The album is currently slated to be issued in late 2012.

    Dear Tom, Saw you in early October with my sorority sister from Syracuse University at the Mint and went to hear you at Chickie Wah Wah. I bought your CD Almost Native with Evan Christopher and would like to purchase five as holiday gifts. Can I order them though you directly? I paid $10.00. I look forward to hearing from you and may see you again. Sincerely, Donna Aloise
