Recorded 3 days before Dave Brubeck's 90th birthday. Dave and the band are in good spirits and the audience is clearly happy to be there. It was a long show with a wide variety of material. At the start of the 2nd set, the audience members start to spontaneously sing Happy Birthday. Dave picks up on it and they improvise for several minutes on a theme of "Happy Birthday to You." Near the end of set two they do Take Five in response to a request. Then a big cake is brought out. If you listen you can hear Brubeck notice that he has gotten frosting on his jacket while blowing out the candles. He says "This suit was brand new..... 20 years ago!"
