From Hackensack to Englewood Cliffs is a compilation album by American saxophonist Ike Quebec, released in 2000 on Blue Note. The album compiles eight jukebox-oriented pieces recorded by Quebec in his first Blue Note session, which, coincidentally, would become the last Blue Note session ever recorded at Rudy Van Gelder's original Hackensack facility. Indeed, Van Gelder thenceforth moved his studio to the more spacious Englewood Cliffs building. The album also features two additional pieces recorded at the new location.

The first eight tracks are also available on the more recent The Complete Blue Note 45 Sessions.
