“. . . Midnight, an album that proves to be both inviting and offbeat. She opens Midnight Blue in a soulful gait, as the title track sets a twilight mood. Pianist Dave Braham adds the lightest pianistic flourishes, while drummer Steve Johns shows himself to be a master of understatement on the brushes. This lithe, whispery underpinning provides a panoramic vista for Johnson’s smoky vocal stylings here. She sings with a sly affection, sounding by turns inviting and quietly resolute – like June Christy in a particularly confessional moment. Something so hushed and affectionate might have conveyed the idea that Johnson is going to play it safe here. Instead, she sings with a horn-like sweep on tracks like “Silver Night,” pulling every ounce of emotion from the thrillingly elongated words.”
