This Here Is Bobby Timmons is the debut album led by American jazz pianist Bobby Timmons recorded in 1960 and released on the Riverside label.

AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow:
This is a classic Riverside set that has been reissued on CD in the Original Jazz Classics series. Pianist Bobby Timmons by early 1960 had already had successful stints with Art Blakey (where he contributed “Moanin'”) and Canonball Adderley (writing “This Here” and “Date Dere”).
