"In the year 1964, Connie grew into one of the nation's most popular "live" and sought after performers realizing the important pacing of a show. She had a regular two-month commitment to the Sahara in Las Vegas. Many of her swing numbers were arranged by Claus Ogerman, Marty Paich, Don Costa, Joe Mazzu, Ralph Burns, or Joe Mele.

Claus arranged some jazzy numbers for this film as well as standards and would later work on a contemporary LP "Connie Sings Bacharach/David" with a heavy jazz theme (in 1968) which caused Burt himself, to state that Connie had interpreted some of his compositions in a way that no one else had.. . ."
