The Outside Within is an album by American jazz saxophonist Chico Freeman recorded in 1978 and released on the India Navigation label.[1]


The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 4½ stars stating "The music is often influenced by the scales of the Far East, yet also has the warmth and extroverted emotions of the west. All of the musicians have opportunities to make strong contributions, and the top-notch players (some of the finest) are heard throughout in top form".[2]
