Tutankhamun is a 1969 album by the Art Ensemble of Chicago recorded for the Freedom label. It features performances by Lester Bowie, Joseph Jarman, Roscoe Mitchell and Malachi Favors Maghostut. It is subsequently viewed as one of AEOC's lesser works, as incorporated in an Allmusic review by Scott Yanow who states "Due to the weak opener and the LP-length playing time, this is one of the Art Ensemble's lesser efforts despite "The Ninth Room".[2]

The album was named for Tutankhamun, an Egyptian pharaoh of the 18th dynasty.
