Out of the Forrest is an album by saxophonist Jimmy Forrest recorded in 1961 and released on the Prestige label.

AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow:
This CD reissue is an excellent example of tenor saxophonist Jimmy Forrest in a soulful but fairly straight-ahead setting. Accompanied by pianist Joe Zawinul, bassist Tommy Potter and drummer Clarence Johnston, Forrest revives his “Bolo Blues,” and plays his basic “Crash Program,” and otherwise sticks to melodic standards. His highly expressive powers and ability to say a lot with a few notes is very much in evidence on this excellent set. (https://www.allmusic.com/album/out-of-the-forrest-mw0000234092).
