This album is often considered the brother album of Back at the Chicken Shack since it was recorded during the same session and same lineup, as well as simultaneousness released. Unfortunately Back at the Chicken Shack was so great that people tended to overlook this album because of that. Smith still provides some of his greatest jams with Midnight Special running at 10:00, one of his longer jams. It feels like an extension to Back at the Chicken Shack and continues the same style of Smith's organ and Turrentine's dirty sax. Of course, it isn't one of his best albums of all time, it still is a great album and deserves 5 stars for the all star lineup putting forth some cool jams. I really liked Smith's rendition of Basie's one o' clock jump which ends the album off strong.

How has no one else reviewed this? I'll leave the musical details to someone who can better illuminate them to the world. Suffice to say, I love Jimmy Smith's music, and this is one low-down, groovy album. I reckon it a little to Kenny Burrell's Midnight Blue. It has that same blues quality where nothing is overplayed and every chord sounds like it was struck with a distinct purpose. I can't wait to get the partner album, Chicken Shack.

How can a no-talent review a MASTER? Really......what can one say? There are not enough superlatives. Just ordered the companion album (Chicken Shack), both recorded in one session.

Just open, sit back and enjoy. Repeatedly.

There are many tastes but given a particular moment when all things and artists just come together in the perfect amounts and you have a TIMELESS masterpiece.

The Hammond growls in pleasure.

The great service through Amazon didn't hurt the experience, either.

I cut my jazz organ teeth on this album many years ago when it was first issued on vinyl. The title tune, Midnight Special, literally got such a deep groove in it from being played that I had to buy a second copy of the album. I was delighted to see this re-issue on mp3. Now I can get in the Jimmy Smith groove forever without fear of wearing out the ones and zeroes of this digital recording. Groove on!
