Jazz 'Round the World is an album by American jazz multi-instrumentalist Yusef Lateef featuring performances recorded in 1963 for the Impulse! label.
The Allmusic review by Jason Ankeny awarded the album 4 stars stating "Yusef Lateef's first Impulse! date Jazz 'Round the World anticipates the emerging vogue for global music with a series of impassioned interpretations of traditional ethnic folk songs... Lateef proves that while music may indeed reign as the universal language, some speakers are far more fluent and eloquent than others".
