Recorded on January 8, 1963 at Rudy Van Gelder Studio in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey.

Midnight Blue is one of those records that you just put on, sit back and relax. Burrell and a great band including Stanley Turrentine on tenor sax, Bill English on drums, Ray Barretto on conga and Major Holley Jr. on bass lay down tunes including "Mule", "Soul Lament", "Wavy Gravy", "Gee Baby Ain't I good for You" and "Midnight Blue" among others. Burrell is quoted as saying to Alfred Lion "I have always had a Love for the blues. In my earliest days in Detroit, I worked with groups that concentrated a great deal on the blues. And I wanted to get a group together for this session that can feel the blues the way I do."
