As befits the title, Midnight Cafe is a relaxed session including intimate classics ("Dream a Little Dream of Me," "Hold Me") but also a few uptempo numbers ("Accentuate the Positive," "Jeepers Creepers"). The album includes great contributions from Ruby Braff, Bucky Pizzarelli and Slam Stewart; the latter appears on his classic "Flat Foot Floogie," as well as bass. It's an intriguing session, with plenty of highlights and great soloing.
