AllMusic Review by Jon O'Brien

Featuring 27 tracks from both legendary jazz singers including Nina Simone ("I Put a Spell on You"), Billie Holiday ("I'm a Fool to Want You"), and Ella Fitzgerald ("Let's Do It (Let's Fall in Love)"), and contemporary vocalists such as Jamie Cullum ("What a Difference a Day Made"), Melody Gardot ("Your Heart Is as Black as Night"), and Diana Krall ("Cry Me a River"), in addition to instrumentals from the likes of Stan Getz ("Desafinado") and Coleman Hawkins ("La Rosita"), Autour de Minuit is a two-CD Verve-issued easy listening compilation designed to soundtrack the unwinding atmosphere of the midnight hour.
