Also featured on the album are Miss Toni Tennille, from the Captain and Tennille, and the Commanders Jazz Band, a band known for its talent and professionalism. This album seeks to pay tribute to some of America's most beloved songwriters including Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers, Leonard Bernstein and Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers, Leonard Bernstein.
