A Night in Tunisia is a jazz album by Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, released in 1960.

From the liner notes by Barbara J. Gardner: "This album is a prime example of Blakey's expressed desire to showcase his young talent. Not only is there extended solo room for the musicians; further, all but the title tune were written and arranged by the talented junior jazz citizens in his group."

The album was recorded at the Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, and engineered by Rudy Van Gelder.
