Compared the HDTT-Issue to the available Online-Streams, it even beats the very good 2012 Hi-Res Remaster... authentic bass, not too much, just right. The percussion transients are fun to listen to, for me this is the magical part of this recording, for i am not too interested in blues, normally... I just wish the sax would have been recorded 'bout 3 dBs lower, sometimes, but it is like that... I would recommend this version without hestitation
Midnight Blue is a wonderful collection of jazz music that swings yet has a driving sound all its own, with a perfect mix of Stanley's sax along with the superb unmistakable guitar of Kenny.
This is a must buy Album for jazz lovers. It is Kenny Burrell at his best and playing with the best. Of course kenny is one of the best jazz guitarists, even the rest of the band (Ray and Stanley) are each outstanding in their own right. . Chitlins Con Carne, is one of Kenny's best-known sizzlers. "Mule & Soul Lament" are both nice, gentle and deeply touching. The title song, "Midnight Blue" outstanding. "Saturday Night Blues" shows Turrentine at his best. "Gee, Baby, Ain't I Good To You" highlights the awesome finest.guitar played by kenny. Recording using Merging Technology Editing software with the Hapi Analog to Digital converter is really amazing.
This is a great album from the classic era of Blue Note records. A definite recommendation for those who want an album that you can either let wash over you without any effort, but also one for if you want to sit and analyse the musicality of the playing. Favourite track: Midnight Blue.
