Two of a Mind is an album recorded by American jazz saxophonists Paul Desmond and Gerry Mulligan featuring performances recorded in 1962 which were released on the RCA Victor label.

The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 4½ stars and stated “Altoist Paul Desmond and baritonist Gerry Mulligan always made for a perfect team during their infrequent collaborations. Both of the saxophonists had immediately distinctive light tones, strong wits, and the ability to improvise melodically. … the interplay between Desmond and Mulligan is consistently delightful. Highly recommended”.
