Our Man in Jazz is an album by jazz saxophonist Sonny Rollins, released by RCA Victor featuring July 1962 performances by Rollins with Don Cherry, Bob Cranshaw, and Billy Higgins. These performances have been described as contrasting from Rollins' previous style by moving to "very long free-form fancies, swaggering and impetuous". The CD reissue supplements the original LP's three tracks with three tracks recorded in February of the following year, with Henry Grimes replacing Cranshaw on bass.

The Sonny Rollins entry in the German Sony/RCA Victor Original Album Classics series contains the five albums he recorded for RCA between 1962-1964. They are individually packaged in a single box, with replicas of the original artwork. The albums contained here are from the very productive period after Rollins emerged from his second "retirement" phase - in a career fraught with them. First up is the true gem in the bunch, The Bridge - so named for the period Rollins simply practiced his horn at night on the Brooklyn Bridge. Other titles in this box include Our Man in Jazz, What's New? (which boasted the first version of his "Don't Stop the Carnival"), Sonny Meets Hawk (with Coleman Hawkins), and The Standard Sonny Rollins. All of these recordings are solid, but there is more than a chance that Rollins fans already have all of them. From the liner notes: "Classic Compact Discs, a subsidiary of Classic Records, was created with one specific goal - to increase the availability of the highest quality recordings to the audiophile community
