    Another great gem in Blue Note's Blue compilation series, Midnight Blue features some of the greatest sensual, nocturnal songs issued by the label over its entire history. Johnny Hartman's buttery voice seduces on "The Nearness of You," Nat King Cole and George Shearing soothe on "Fly Me to the Moon," and on "You Don't Know What Love is," Cassandra Wilson shows that the great traditions of vocal jazz continue even into the '90s. ~ Stacia Proefrock
