I Don't Care Who Knows It is an album by American pianist and arranger Duke Pearson featuring performances recorded between 1968 and 1970.[1] The album was released on the Blue Note label in 1996.


The Allmusic review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine awarded the album 4 stars stating "the music swings with an understated funk, with the band alternating between standard hard-bop and mellow, soulful grooves. On the whole, I Don't Care Who Knows It is fairly uneven — the sessions don't set well together, but work well as individual sets. Nevertheless, there is enough good material here to make it worthwhile for soul-jazz, Latin-jazz and, especially, Pearson aficionados".[2]
