Feeling Free is an album by guitarist Barney Kessel recorded in 1969 and released on the Contemporary label. The album marked a brief return to the label before Kessel embarked on an extended stay in Europe.
The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow states: "Although none of the musicians was associated exclusively with the avant-garde (Elvin Jones came the closest but never quite embraced free jazz), they show the influence of the explorations of the era, using aspects of the innovations as a logical way to stretch the jazz mainstream. Fascinating music".
