Most Much! is an album by saxophonist Jimmy Forrest recorded in 1961 and released on the Prestige label.

“Jimmy Forrest was a very consistent tenor, able to infuse bop and swing standards with soul and his distinctive tone. With the assistance of pianist Hugh Lawson, bassist Tommy Potter, drummer Clarendon Johnson and Ray Barretto on congas, Forrest explores mostly veteran tunes, such as a jumping “Annie Laurie,” and the calypso “Matilda,” a sentimental “My Buddy,” “Robbins Nest,” and even “Sonny Boy.” Enjoyable music from the warm tenor.” – Scott Yanow/AllMusic.
