At Last is a Grammy Award-nominated 2003 album by Cyndi Lauper. It made the top 40 of the album charts in both the US and Australia. The album features a duet with Tony Bennett on "Makin' Whoopee".

The album consists of a collection of cover versions of jazz standards songs, in addition to a cover of a contemporary song, re-arranged into a Jazz song.

The song "Walk on By" S.A.F. was #10 in Billboard's Hot Dance Club Play and the Eddie X Mixes version hit the same chart at #15.
