Cloud 7 is the first studio album by Tony Bennett, released in 1955.

The album featured material from the Great American Songbook and presented Bennett in a way different from his hit parade material of the early nineteen-fifties using a combo of jazz musicians. The album was arranged by the featured guitarist, Chuck Wayne, and trumpeter Charles Panely and was recorded between August and December 1954.
