Long Night is an album by jazz musician Frank Strozier, recorded in 1961 for Jazzland.[3]

In a review for the August 16, 1962 issue of Down Beat magazine jazz critic Pete Welding wrote: "Strozier's writing for the sextet numbers is spare and attractive: he has avoided the temptation to keep three horns going all the time and uses the tenor and baritone for effective ensemble accents."[4]
