Brass Shout is an album by trumpeter Art Farmer, featuring a brass ensemble arranged and conducted by Benny Golson. Recorded in 1959, the album was originally released on the United Artists label.



The album was recorded in Nola Studies in New York City.


The Allmusic review stated: "Golson's well-crafted arrangements back Farmer's superb solos with flair". The Penguin Guide to Jazz commented that "the arrangements are fairly laid-back and use the ensemble rather sparingly, leaving lots of space for the featured horns".
