5 x Monk 5 x Lacy is a live solo album by soprano saxophonist Steve Lacy recorded in Sweden in 1994 and released on the Silkheart label.



The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 4½ stars stating "His interpretations are so self-sufficient that one does not miss the other instruments, although it is quite easy to "hear" the bass and drums behind the soprano... Highly recommended".

The Penguin Guide to Jazz nominated the album as part of its "Core Collection" of recommended jazz recordings.

JazzTimes stated "the entirety of Lacy's art is to be found in compacted form in solo concerts like 5 X Monk 5 X Lacy"
