Midnight at Minton's is a 1941 album by jazz musician Don Byas. It is a live recording of a jam session at Minton's Playhouse, the famous New York City nightclub at which the emerging style of bebop was being pioneered. It features one of the earliest known recordings of Thelonious Monk, who was then playing piano in Minton's house band.

Tenor saxophone legend Don Byas is heard with great clarity on this, a relative jam session, as is vocalist Helen Humes (the first two cuts) and ostensible leader/trumpeter Joe Guy, whose high energy solos are very good in spots. Less audible in the mix are pianist Thelonious Monk and drummer Kenny Clarke, working in this band while bebop was fermenting. These two would lead the bop charge later in the '40s at Minton's Playhouse, the bebop concubine/jazz club in .

When Henry Minton began hosting Monday night jam sessions at his night club in Harlem, no one could have foreseen the groundbreaking. Minton’s forged a new era of musicianship, in which the conventional boundaries of jazz music were pushed past their apex. On Monday nights, in an environment where the experienced and experimental mixed, clashed, and battled-a new style of jazz was born. Bebop music marks a transition from the swing standards of the early to late 30s, to a period of deepening musicianship and virtuosity
