Composed By – Hank Crawford. There is nothing interesting about this album. The players all perform well and its not a bad listen, but there is nothing cutting edge, nothing grabbing me at all. By 1983 this style of jazz had been done ad nauseam for three decades.

Midnight Ramble, released in 1983 on Milestone, was saxophonist Hank Crawford's return to recording after a four-year break following his departure from Kudu. It was the beginning of a decades-long relationship with the prestigious jazz label. Crawford, a veteran of Ray Charles, had long been associated with soul-jazz groove-oriented music. On this date, he delivers a solid, straight-ahead session with some notable surprises. The first is that he plays not only his trademark alto saxophone, but also electric piano.
