Guitarist Kenny Burrell debuted on Blue Note Records in 1956 and over the following seven years made a series of excellent albums for the label 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 profoundly soulful cast including tenor saxophonist Stanley Turrentine, bassist Major Holley, Jr., drummer Bill English, and Ray Barretto on congas. Burrell originals including “Chitlins con Carne,” “Midnight Blue,” “Saturday Night Blues,” and the stunning solo guitar piece “Soul Lament” set the tone for this timeless classic adorned by one of the all-time great Reid Miles cover designs. This Blue Note Classic Vinyl Edition is all-analog, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original master tapes, and pressed on 180g vinyl at Optimal.

Superb pressingBy: Ben on 6 September 2021What a great pressing. Virtually silent surface noise, allowing the original vibe of the analog tape to breathe, croon and punch. And my stylus and preamp are hardly highend. Great dynamics and the 3D presentation this album is known for fills the room and makes you relax, yet it's not too wide as to be distracting. No over eq or hifiness has been applied. One may say an original master tape is always superior, I can't imagine this original master tape sounding noticeable different to this superb press. And of course it's a really smooth programme, definately single malt worthy, just after midnight.
