The recording boasts music arranged and orchestrated by O'Hara's Pajama Game co-star, Harry Connick, Jr. Connick also accompanies O'Hara on piano on 12 of the recording's 14 tracks.
The recording features covers of Billy Joel and James Taylor tunes as well as original songs and tunes from the Great American Songbook.
