The Street Swingers is an album by jazz trombonist and pianist Bob Brookmeyer with guitarists Jim Hall and Jimmy Raney recorded in late 1957 for the World Pacific label.

AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow:
Valve trombonist Bob Brookmeyer (who also plays some piano on this long out-of-print Pacific Jazz LP) teams up with guitarists Jim Hall and Jimmy Raney, bassist Bill Crow and drummer Osie Johnson for six group originals. The tunes are fairly basic and all of the cool-toned musicians are up-to-par on the lightly swinging material.

Track listing:
“Arrowhead” (Jim Hall) – 8:59
“Street Swingers” (Bob Brookmeyer) – 6:20
“Hot Buttered Noodling” (Jimmy Raney) – 6:01
“Musicale du Jour” (Brookmeyer) – 8:49
“Raney Day” (Hall) – 5:24
“Jupiter” (Raney) – 5:06

Personnel:
Bob Brookmeyer – valve trombone, piano
Jim Hall, Jimmy Raney – guitar
Bill Crow – bass
Osie Johnson – drums
