Jazz Messengers!!!!! is a 1961 jazz album released by Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers for Impulse! Records. Expanding to a sextet for the first time, it was the group's final recording with Bobby Timmons, who would be replaced by Cedar Walton.
In his Down Beat review of January 4, 1962, critic Ira Gitler commented: "This is a change of pace from most recent Messenger releases. There is only one original; the rest are standards that have not been overdone."
