Blue Note Classic Vinyl Edition on 180-gram LP

Guitarist Kenny Burrell debuted on Blue Note in 1956 and throughout the following seven years made a series of excellent albums that culminated with his masterwork, Midnight Blue. Recorded in 1963, the album waded deep into the blues, conjuring an alluring late-night vibe with a soulful cast including Stanley Turrentine on tenor sax, Major Holley, Jr. on bass, Bill English on drums, and Ray Barretto on congas. Blue Note Classic Vinyl Edition is all-analog, mastered from the original tapes on 180-gram LP.

Midnight Blue - Most Excellent

This is my first exposure to Kenny Burrell and I am very impressed. This album was very relaxing and I could feel my blood pressure dropping as I listened, lol. The vinyl quality is great, dead quiet with black background. The individual musicians were fantastic, and the recording had very good sound staging. I'm looking forward to more recordings by Kenny Burrell and I'm very glad I have this one. As for the negative review below I imagine that person should just stick to rap.

Burrell and Turrentine's interplay is intoxicating. This is one of those albums I just get lost in. Blue Notes pressing is dead quiet and transparent. Kenny and the boys sound like they are in the room with you.

Lots of no-fill!

Kinda crazy acoustic sounds is selling a product like this. The record is filled with no-fill sections which create for an awful listening experience, especially on side A.

This should be recalled or sold at a discounted price. Not worth the money!
