Empathy is a 1962 album by jazz musicians Bill Evans and Shelly Manne. It was Evans's first album for Verve Records, after he was released from his contract with Riverside Records, and the two musicians' first collaboration. The sculpture on the cover was by Sheldon Machlin.
Leonard Feather had this to say about the album in his April 11, 1963 review in Down Beat magazine: "Essentially the focus is on Evans, as it should be; yet because of the skill with which he and Manne cooperated, one is often conscious that an important interplay is involved, one that lifts the results far out of the normal piano-with-rhythm class."
