Jumping in the Sugar Bowl is the fourth album by American pianist Amina Claudine Myers featuring performances recorded in 1984 for the Minor Music label.


The Allmusic review by Ron Wynn awarded the album 4 stars stating "Intense, provocative mixture of outside and inside sensibilities. Myers at times ranges and attacks the keyboard, then will change direction and display a soulful, gospel-influenced style. The constantly shifting session keeps things interesting, and there are some fine solos as well".[1]
