Born Free is an album by vibraphonist Milt Jackson recorded in 1966 and released on the Limelight label.[1]


The Allmusic review by Ken Dryden awarded the album 4 stars stating "This obscure mid-'60s record by Milt Jackson has few surprises, though many jazz fans would be suspicious that the theme from the movie Born Free would turn into a viable jazz vehicle. Jackson's funky treatment of this normally laid-back piece works very well".[2]
