Chris Botti continues here pretty much where he left off from his First Wish album, even though the opening track, "The Steps of Postiano", promises a composer more confident and mature than last time round. Playing with a vast array of top session musicians, the trumpeter also uses the Native American drum extensively, a simple ingredient which deepens his message considerably. The basic recipe for his tunes remains the same: first, a catchy intro that modulates into a light groove , then Botti comes in, dabbing the sound picture with his bluesy, crystal-clear lines. He always plays some beautiful trumpet, and on "Mr. Wah" his little outburst is a modest, tasteful reminder of what a classy player he is. But he always leaves us wanting more. This second solo album came after Botti had completed an extremely successful film score for the love-thriller-tragedy Caught. Midnight Without You features the track "Forgiven" from that movie, sung by Jonathan Brooke, far from the best track from the movie but is indisputably a "nice" ballad. Listeners who like the more serene, intense qualities of Botti's playing are advised to turn to the Caught album which is highly recommended. --Yngvil V.G.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Milt M. R. Ingarfield on 6 Feb. 2004
Format: Audio CD
For his 1997 release "Chris Botti" assembled the pretty much the same stellar cast of musicians as he had used on his previous recordings. This album has 9 tracks that are new and 1 previously released song that appeared on the soundtrack to the film "Caught" this being the song with "Jonatha Brooke" on vocals called "Forgiven".

To begin this collection the instrumental track "The steps of Positano" starts the album off, this has a familiar feel to it as just like his previous 2 releases the music is all atmosphere, this is perfectly conveyed by the brushed cymbal playing of "Jerry Marotta" and the keyboard skills of "Paul Joseph Moore" (of the "Blue Nile" fame) and "Mr Botti" himself who plays the same themes as the keyboards but with sensuous trumpet playing.

The next track is a song co-written by 2 members of the "Blue Nile" Paul Buchanan" and "P. J. Moore". (The sleeve has a credit for the entire band on it, but "Robert Bell" who plays the bass for the "Blue Nile" isn't on the album at all) For me this is the key song on the album and worth the price of the collection on it's own. The title track "Midnight without you" is hybrid of the styles of "Mr Botti" and the "Blue Nile" put together on this song to great effect both parties deal in creating textures, atmosphere and space.
To put a little variation in the album the third track "Regroovable" is more funk than texture this is put across by the trumpet and the rhythm section being funkier than normal, this track has still got atmosphere but now only the keyboard playing of "P. J. Moore" is the only instrument creating it.

Complete suprise 11 April 2001
By Steven Clem Haley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
First heard this guy (I was a jazz novice) at an in-store listening booth and bought it since it was on sale.
Without a doubt it is the favorite cool jazz disc in my wife and my collection, with the exception of Kind of Blue.
I associate locations and weather when I hear music. This reminds me of driving through downtown San Francisco on a rainy Friday night. If you've ever done that, you'll understand.
Listen and enjoy the passing of time.

Incredible CD 2 Oct. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I thought CD's wouldn't wear out...Well, when it comes to this one, I found that untrue. Listening to "Regroovable" became an obsession, even though I completely love the rest of the album. I just had my favorite song. I'm on my second copy and still can't get enough. Botti is outstanding but is not as well known as you would expect. Once you are hooked on his sensual horn, you can't imagine life without him. He plays from his soul, and lets his horn speak for him. He epitomizes "cool" (jazz or otherwise...) Just buy the CD!!!

COOL, SMOOTH & SENSUOUS 20 Feb. 2001
By BEZEREL L. QUINTO - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I first saw Chris Botti in Sting's "Brand New Day Tour-Live At The Universal Amphitheater" DVD. He substituted the role which used to be played by Branford Marsalis, only this time in his cool, smooth & sensuous trumpet. I used to favor the saxophone as the better horn instrument as compared to the trumpet but Chris Botti made me appreciate the trumpet by the way he plays. "Midnight..." is my second Chris Botti CD (the first one being "Slowing Down The World". He has never failed me thus far.

The Best of Mr. Botti 6 July 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have several of Chris Botti's CDs. This is the best, in my opinion. Magical playing by Chris, and wonderful vocals by Paul Buchanan and Jonatha Brooke. This CD has a lovely melancholy that washes over you like a soothing blanket.

"Midnight Without You" 26 Nov. 2005
By Rebecca*rhapsodyinblue* - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is one of Chris Botti's most remarkable recordings along with "To Love Again," "When I Fall In Love" and "A Thousand Kisses Deep." Mr. Botti is one of the finest jazz musicians America ever produced and he's not only a terrific trumpet player but also a talented composer as well. This recording showcases his creative musical sensibility not only for being an expert on trumpet but also his talent in composing beautiful melodies. On this CD, he composed all the delightful tunes for our listening pleasure. My friends and I will have the pleasure to be at his concert and watch him perform live with his special guests; Sting, Paula Cole, Gladys Knight, Jill Scott, Paul Buchanan, Renee Olstead and Burt Bacharach this coming Friday, December 2nd at the Wilshire Theatre.

You'll love listening to all the great tracks in this wonderful CD, which is a perfect companion for relaxation, for driving and background music for cocktail and dinner parties. To me, the most ear-catching tunes are "Regroovable," "When Rain Falls" and the title track "Midnight Without You" with Paul Buchanan presenting his vocal artistry.

Very highly recommended not only for smooth jazz lovers but also for every one who appreciates fine music and outstanding artists.
