Bob Brookmeyer and Friends is a 1964 jazz album released on Columbia Records by valve trombonist Bob Brookmeyer and featuring tenor saxophonist Stan Getz.

Reviewer Scott Yanow said that "the young rhythm section (pianist Herbie Hancock, vibraphonist Gary Burton, bassist Ron Carter, and drummer Elvin Jones) uplifts what would have been a fairly conventional (although high quality) bop date".[1]

The "all-star" rhythm section included Miles Davis' piano and bass players, Stan Getz's vibraphonist, and John Coltrane's drummer.

The album was recorded at Columbia's 30th Street Studio, on May 26 and 27, 1964, and was issued on vinyl later the same year. It was reissued on vinyl LP in 1980 and on CD in 2005. Burton was a partial contributor and is heard only on some tracks.
