Tenor Conclave is a studio album by Hank Mobley, Al Cohn, John Coltrane and Zoot Sims, recorded in 1956 and issued in early 1957 on Prestige Records.[1][2]

It was originally credited to the Prestige All Stars. However, as Coltrane's profile grew in the following years, after his contract with the label had expired, Prestige re-released it in 1962 as an apparent 'new' album, with a different cover prominently displaying Coltrane's name. This reissue of the album was given the catalogue number PRLP 7249.
