Review
The definitive jazz guitar album, with a hint of blues. The sounds of Burrell's guitar is calm, cool and bluesy. The trick is that Burrell never tries to hurry the music, unlike Herb Ellis. His sax player Stanley Turrentine, perhaps not the most skillful player, knows how to use the instrument to his fair advantage. The two of them create some unforgettably bluesy moments in all of jazz's history. The title song "Midnight Blue" is a good song in itself. The coolest of the cool is of course "Chitlins Con Carne." If you play this CD at a late night party where everyone is in the laidback mood, you have be coined a person of "great taste."
