Double Rainbow: The Music of Antonio Carlos Jobim is a 1995 album by jazz saxophonist Joe Henderson, released on Verve Records. It contains Henderson's rearrangement of music by Brazilian composer Antonio Carlos Jobim.[2]

The album was originally intended to be a collaboration between Henderson and Jobim, but the plan was changed following Jobim's death.[2]

Like his previous two albums for Verve Records, Double Rainbow received excellent reviews and relatively good sales for a jazz album in 1995. Reviewer Scott Yanow called the album "very accessible yet unpredictable".[2] The Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD awarded the album three stars and described it as "essentially high-calibre light-jazz".[3]
