Editor's info:

Alfred Lion considered this his favorite production and well he should have. Without piano, Burrell, Stanley Turrentine and company get a clean open sound and a deep groove on such now classic compositions as the title tune and "Chitlins Con Carne", which has become a blues band staple.
This RVG Series compact disc also includes extra photographs and 2 bonus tracks.

the best overall
Reviewer: petedenis from mont saint-hilaire, québec, canada
this is the best disc, from the beginning to the last song.Consider to buy this one if your new to jazz...10/10

Special Rhythm Blues
Reviewer: Wayne Dawson from Melbourne, Australia.
Kenny Burrell has a unique blend of style on full view with this recording. Bill English on drums and Ray Barretto on congas add spice to the rhythm section, never getting in each others way, indeed, adding space to swing which Kenny Burrell and Stanley Turrentine do in abundance. Theirs is a rich musical language of electric guitar and tenor sax, compatible and very compelling (Turrentine's 'Hustlin" makes for a great boon companion to these sessions). On the title track Kenny and rhythm go it alone and the vibe is all positive, unhesitating in its confidence. The quiet playing of Burrell on 'Soul Lament' is rescued beautifully here by 24 bit remastering. Thanks Rudy you gem!

Fantastique
Reviewer: Claude from Nimes, France
Un album fantastique - qui n'a pas pris une ride

simply the best!
Reviewer: kevin burke from renton ,wash.
this i have on a japanese 180grm. pressing.the sound is a lot better than cd.but anyway its one of my absolute favorite records so pure,so real, simply the best.

something to think about...
Reviewer: Feodor from Moscow, Russia
I have about 400 cd now. Half of it blues, another half jazz, almost everyting from "blue note". A lot of Jimmy Smith, some Grant Green, some Donaldson, a couple of Ike Quebeck, Stanley Turrentine, of course Kenny Burrell, some other guys. And if i'll move somewhere & won't be able to take more than 3 cd's from my jazz part i'll take "Midnight Blue" the first one, "Idle Moments" by great Grant Green, "Home Cooking" by Jimmy Smith... "Midnight Blue" was the first "Blue Note" record that i bought & IT'S THE BEST!!!

Desert Island Pick
Reviewer: BG from Las Cruces New Mexico
What can I say but this is as good as jazz gets.Midnight Blue HAS to be the definitive late night jazz CD!Hands down one of the best jazz recordings ever!!!

A Cult Classic
Reviewer: Steve C from London , England
When Alfred Lion was asked what was his personal favorite Blue Note recording he would mention Midnight Blue. Since then it has gained cult status. The classic Reid Miles / Francis Wloff cover has been copied by Elvis Costello for his 1980 LP Almost Blue. The opening track Chiltins Con Carne has become a blues staple having been covered by blues legends Junior Wells and Stevie Ray Vaughan.The title track was borrowed by now Blue Note recording artist Van Morrison for Moondance.The record itself is classic late night jazz.The late, great Mr T plays brillianty on the tracks he's featured on.I can't comment on the extra tracks as i have the original LP copy of this cult classic which is my second favorite Blue Note LP ahead of Hank Mobley's Soul Station.

Burrell's Blues
Reviewer: Bob Payne from Topeka, Kansas
This is indeed a great record! I find myself playing it a lot lately. Every track is great, but my favorite is "Saturday Night Blues". It's the perfect closer for an album about the blues. I can see using it as a closing theme during live performances of this type of music. The melody is relaxed but hot and Kenny plays his best solo on the record. Stanley Turrentine is the consummate saxophonist for this type of music. Twenty years ago I had the privilege of seeing Kenny Burrell live. I wished he had used this lineup and played this type of music!

Kenny B - The Greatest!!
Reviewer: John Mayhew from Philadelphia, PA
Truth be told, I just heard this selection (Mule) for the first time this morning (Temple FM-WRTI). My first guess was Kenny B. - he has that unique, distinctive, authoritative sound - "Kenny's Sound". Talk about a coincidence - it was Jimmy Smith who first introduced me (not literally) to the great Mr. B on his "Any Number Can Win" album (The Sermon). Kenny's ultra-articulate playing makes his instrument sound like it has a TONGUE! It's the same type of playing on "Mule", and this recording predates THE SERMON - great preparation, huh? (He also shows his [very substantial] 'stuff' on ANY NUMBER's - "What'd I Say") Check it out - you'll love it!! I love Wes, but Kenny B is tops! They could well be co-champions!

best guitar album
Reviewer: kosmo from athens greece
best guitar album i"ve ever heard

This album is what Blue Note was all about
Reviewer: Philip from Melbourne, Australia
The Penguin Jazz Guide once described this album as "a minor classic" with Turrentine playing as if he's trying to blow out a candle on the other side of the room. This album is so bluesy and cool that if you play it, you'll be able to wear your Ray Ban shades out at night, and nobody will laugh at you.

Better in the night!
Reviewer: Pau from Valencia, Spain
I can´t say nothing more about that great album. But it surely gives his best when you lisent it in the night.

Classic!!!!!
Reviewer: Lapeere Bert from Meulebeke, Belgium, Europe
What can I say more, theire are just no words. A must have. Love it or drop dead.

wonderfull
Reviewer: nacho sanchis aparicio from Canals.Spain
I think that this is the bible of the blues.Totally atemporal.

Getting down
Reviewer: Alfred Scott from Rialto, California
The best blues cd of the century. And to think without a piano.

The MEANING of the blues
Reviewer: Krish from Bangalore,India
if you ever wanted to check out every possible shade of the blues,this has to be the record.Burrell's fluid guitar sound conjures up everything- from the funky 'Chitlins Con Carne" to the delicately textured 'Mule'...and Stanley Turrentine is in fine nick on this date.The RVG series is the one the greatest things that's happened to Jazz..period

Few words are needed
Reviewer: Steve C from London, England
Best record Kenny Burrell ever did,greatest guitar jazz LP of all time. Nuff said.

U Got That Right W.C. From Atlanta
Reviewer: Robert from Oklahoma City, Ok
It blew my mind when I first heard this CD. I was on my way to HotSprings Arkansas and kinda borrowed this CD from my mother. I couldn't believe what I was listening to. Kenny Burrell gets way down into the soul of a man with "Midnight Blue". He plays with so much heart and soul on this CD that I don't think I ever heard blues played this way before. But I still have to remain loyal to my main man Grant Green even though Kenny is the best when it comes to "playin the blues".

It blew my mind when I first heard this CD. I was on my way to HotSprings Arkansas and kinda barrowed this CD from my mother. I couldn't believe what I was listening to. Kenny Burrell gets way down into the soul of a man with "Midnight Blue". He plays with so much heart and soul on this CD that I don't think I ever heard blues played this way before. But I still have to remain loyal to my main man Grant Green even though Kenny is the best when it comes to "playin the blues".

greatest bluesy-jazz album ever
Reviewer: W.C. from Atlanta
with apologies to Montgomery, Green, Christian, Django and all the wonderful guitarists...of the jazz CDs I have that highlight the guitar as the feature instrument (about 15%-20% of 175-200), this is absolutely my favorite..basic, strait-ahead style..lots of meat and soul..we play this as background whenever we entertain..must have for your collection.
