The first edition is a two-disc set which also features Sondheim standards like "Broadway Baby," "Old Friends," "Good Thing Going," and "Send in the Clowns," alongside deeper cuts like "The Boy From…," "Ariadne," "What More Do I Need," and "Sooner or Later."

In addition to Elder and Bianco, performers include Nicholas Rodriguez, Brian Charles Rooney, Teri Ralston, Liz McCartney, Sally Mayes, Danielle Ferland, Alton Fitzgerald White, and Annie Golden.

The second volume in the series will be released on March 22, 2022, marking the late Sondheim's 92nd birthday, with the third album dropping on June 1, 2022.
