Jazz 'n' Samba is an album by American jazz vibraponist Milt Jackson featuring performances recorded in 1964 for the Impulse! label.[1]


The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow stated "This is an odd LP. The first session is a conventional one... The flip side substitutes two guitars for Flanagan's piano and uses bossa nova rhythms in hopes of getting a hit".[2]
