Compose Original Adaptations and Produce CD: Easy Listening/Musical Theatre Genre

Looking for: Music Producer
Budget: Negotiable

I want to hire a music producer to help me create a high quality and ‘ready-for-sale’ album that I intend to market and sell in Pennsylvania. The CD is meant to be an homage to my late father, Harry Kalas, who was a Hall of Fame sportscaster for the Philadelphia Phillies. I will perform the vocals for the album (in additional to other vocalists who will be brought in for the duets/chorus’). The CD will have no original songs, however, I would like original adaptations composed for most of the numbers. The genre is a hybrid of easy listening or crooning and musical theatre. Every song will be recorded in a live studio setting with live musicians. Most songs will require about 5-7 musicians, however, one or two may require a small orchestra and one or two may require only one musician.
Below is a non-exhaustive list of songs that will be on the CD:
-High Hopes (Sinatra style)
-Edelweiss (The Sound of Music)
-On the Way to Cape May
-EAGLES fight song
-This is the Moment (in the style of the musical Jekyll and Hyde)
-Bridge Over Troubled Water (in the style of Mark Vicent from Australia’s Got Talent)
-Fugue for Tinhorns (from Guys and Dolls, in the style of Bing Crosby)

This is a very large and potentially long project. I originally would like to hire a music producer to help me produce just one of the above pieces to get an idea for his/her work before committing to hire him/her for the entire project. Hence, when submitting an offer, please submit a proposed budget for composing and helping me create just ONE album quality in-studio recording with live musicians, to start. Thank you.
