Welcome to the home of Tom Hook on the World Wide Web. This site is the portal to some of Tom's artistic endeavors, The New Orleans All-Stars, his solo music projects, The Black Dog Jazz Band archive, and his one-man historical drama, "Riverman!"
In addition we have just added a page on "Jump Jive and Wail, the Music of Louis Prima", the critically acclaimed stage show produced at the National World War II Museum in New Orleans. The complete sound track is available for your listening enjoyment as well as a link to a video of the show.
We are also excited to include a page on Tom's
New John Robichaux Society Orchestra project, re-creating the musi of the popular 1890's New Orleans dance orchestra that laid the foundations for the birth of New Orleans jazz. A complete set of classic waltzes, marches, shottisches, cakewalks, and quadrilles is included for your listening pleasure as well as a couple off nice videos.
There is also a section devoted to his military music compositions for John Tiller and HPS Simulations, leaders in the world of military strategy games.
