Moving Out is an album by jazz saxophonist Sonny Rollins, his second for the Prestige label, featuring performances by Rollins with Kenny Dorham, Elmo Hope, Percy Heath, and Art Blakey, and one track with Thelonious Monk, Tommy Potter, and Art Taylor. It was released in 1956 as PRLP 7058.
The Allmusic review by Michael G. Nastos describes the lineup as "one of the more potent combos of 1954". Author and musician Peter Niklas Wilson called it "simply a typical blowing session, in which virtuoso up-tempo playing and a wealth of invention in a well-known framework count for more than structural innovation".
