AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

Midnight Special is a perfect complement to Back at the Chicken Shack, which was recorded the same day. Organist Jimmy Smith, tenor saxophonist Stanley Turrentine, and guitarist Kenny Burrell always make for a potent team, and with drummer Donald Bailey completing the group, the quartet digs soulfully into such numbers as the groovin’ “Midnight Special,” “Jumpin’ the Blues,” and “One O’Clock Jump.” Highly recommended.

01. Midnight Special (9:54)
02. A Subtle One (7:43)
03. Jumpin’ the Blues (5:26)
04. Why was I Born (6:33)
05. One O’Clock Jump (6:59)
