Saxophone Colossus is the sixth studio album by American jazz saxophonist Sonny Rollins.  Perhaps Rollins's best-known album, it is often considered his breakthrough record.

It was recorded monophonically on June 22, 1956, with producer Bob Weinstock and engineer Rudy Van Gelder at the latter's studio in Hackensack, NJ.

Rollins led a quartet on the album that included pianist Tommy Flanagan bassist Doug Watkins and drummer Max Roach. Saxophone Colossus was released by Prestige Records to critical success and helped establish Rollins as a prominent jazz artist.
