Jazz for the Jet Set is an album by American jazz vibraphonist Dave Pike which was recorded in 1965 for the Atlantic label.
The Allmusic site awarded the album 3 stars stating "This disc is a bit unusual in a few ways. Vibraphonist Dave Pike sticks here exclusively to the marimba, while pianist Herbie Hancock is heard throughout on organ, an instrument he rarely played again… Most of the music consists of obscurities and is open to the influences of the boogaloo and pop rhythms of the era… An interesting effort".
