Animato is an album by guitarist John Abercrombie with keyboardist Vince Mendoza and drummer Jon Christensen recorded in 1989 and released on the ECM label



The Allmusic review by Michael G. Nastos awarded the album 3½ stars stating "An unusual but beautiful item in John Abercrombie's discography, and a coming out for Mendoza, Animato signals a different direction for the ECM label, enabling electronic sounds in a way they had never fully embraced prior". The Penguin Guide to Jazz awarded the album 4 stars stating "one of Abercrombie's most cohesive and swinging sets. He sounds completely in control of the music".
