Africa/Brass is the eighth studio album by jazz musician John Coltrane, released in 1961 on Impulse! Records, catalogue A-6. The sixth release for the fledgling label and Coltrane's first for Impulse!, it features Coltrane's working quartet augmented by a larger ensemble to bring the total number of participating musicians to 21. Its big band sound, with the unusual instrumentation of French horns and euphonium, presented music very different from anything that had been associated with Coltrane to date.

AFRICA/BRASS was John Coltrane's first album for Impulse! and features a somewhat different lineup than the "classic quartet" triumphs he was soon to record for the label. His working band at the time was five-piece, with eventual mainstays Elvin Jones on drums and McCoy Tyner on piano, but two bassists in Reggie Workman and Art Davis. But the most unusual feature of this ensemble, which gives the album its title, is a 15-piece brass band in the background. Still, even lesser Coltrane has spectacular performances and plenty of entertaining moments. AFRICA/BRASS traditionally has only these three cuts, but the complete sessions have been issued with alternative takes and some tunes that were left out completely.
