All Day Long is a jazz album by guitarist Kenny Burrell, although it is nominally credited to the "Prestige All Stars". It was released in 1957 under Prestige label as PRLP 7081. It's characterized by fast pieces and also was one of the first albums in which Burrell was presented as a leader. All the pieces were composed by the members of the band. The cover shows Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in the daytime and by night.

Ira Gitler in the original liner notes points out that "A.T" is dedicated to Art Taylor (hence the initials); "Say Listen" "derives its name from the attention calling phrase that [Byrd] often verbally employs.
