On the Road is an album by Art Farmer recorded in Los Angeles in 1976 and originally released on the Contemporary label.

AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow:
On the Road features a logical but only one-time collaboration between flügelhornist Art Farmer and altoist Art Pepper. With pianist Hampton Hawes, bassist Ray Brown, and either Steve Ellington or Shelly Manne on drums completing the quintet, the five standards and Hawes’ original “Downwind” were certainly in good hands. A special highlight is a duet version of “My Funny Valentine,” featuring Farmer and Hawes. Everyone plays up to par on this spirited straight-ahead set (
