Portrait of Art Farmer is an album by trumpeter Art Farmer featuring performances recorded in 1958 and released on the Contemporary label. It was recorded when Farmer was adjusting to moving from Horace Silver’s band, where he received a high level of rhythmic and harmonic support from the rhythm section, to Gerry Mulligan’s quartet, where there was no piano and only light backing.

“An excellent outing.” (Scott Yanow, AllMusic).
