In the liner notes for the recording, Barrett, who created The Broadway Tenors—a rotating group of Broadway actors who tour in concert—says, “Our idea from the beginning was to have a group of guys flow in and out of the concert, depending on availability. The goal was to maintain the highest level of talent with every combination of singers. This framework has worked really well. We also brought in Michael Dansicker to develop special arrangements and Barry Kleinbort to help with the connective dialogue. David Loud, Phil Reno and Jim Rice have all contributed outstanding arrangements over the years.”
