In Concert is a double live album by the band Blood, Sweat & Tears, that was released in Europe and Japan in 1976. This album was remixed and released in the United States as Live And Improvised in 1991. This collection was recorded live at four different venues over five nights during the summer of 1975. The lineup for this album is the same as the New City album they were supporting on that tour with the exception of Steve Kahn and Mike Stern on guitar.

The songs in this collection were recorded at the Schaeffer Music Festival in New York City; City Hall Plaza in Boston; National Arts Centre in Ottawa, Ontario; and at the Monterey Jazz Festival in Monterey, California.
