Blues and Vanilla is an album by saxophonist Jack Montrose's Quintet with Red Norvo recorded in 1956 for the RCA Victor label.



AllMusic rated the album with 3 stars; in his review, Ken Dryden states: "The cool-toned nature of the tenor saxophonist's compositions and arrangements fits in with the so-called West Coast jazz genre, though like many of the musicians labeled as such, Montrose is not a native of the region".
