A Night in Tunisia is a jazz album by Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers which was recorded in August 1960.

In the original liner notes by Barbara J. Gardner, she wrote: "This album is a prime example of Blakey's expressed desire to showcase his young talent. Not only is there extended solo room for the musicians; further, all but the title tune were written and arranged by the talented junior jazz citizens in his group".
