Steppin' Out is an album by Tony Bennett, released in 1993.

Backed by the Ralph Sharon Trio and themed as a tribute to Fred Astaire, the album continued Bennett's commercial comeback; like the previous year's Perfectly Frank, it achieved gold record status in the United States and in 1994 won the Grammy Award for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Performance.

A music video for "Steppin' Out with My Baby" garnered some MTV airplay; Bennett's newly found youthful audience would become even more apparent on his next outing.
