The CD includes Nadirah's interpretations of popular Buffett songs like "Margaritaville" and "Volcano." Also notable are two duets she sings with him including "Son of a Son of a Sailor" and Eric Clapton's "When the War is Over."

    "Nod To The Storyteller" was recorded using three different bands, one of which is led by acclaimed slide guitarist, Sonny Landreth. The producer, Mac McAnally, a recent inductee into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, contributed two songs to the project and a Grammy Award winning songwriter/percussionist, Ralph MacDonald, contributed "Creola," a collaboration with Buffett about family life on the Louisiana Bayou.
