The Futuristic Sounds of Sun Ra is an album by the American jazz musician Sun Ra and his Arkestra, recorded on October 10, 1961, for the Savoy label and originally released in 1962.

The album was supervised by Tom Wilson, who would later produce albums by the Velvet Underground, Frank Zappa and Bob Dylan.

The album is often considered one of the most accessible records in Ra's vast catalogue;

'Sun Ra's only release for the Savoy label is a gem... Ra sticks to acoustic piano for the entire session, but various percussion instruments are dispersed throughout the band, giving a slightly exotic flavor to some of the tunes... With the exception of "The Beginning," all the tunes are very accessible. This is one to play for the mistaken folks who think the Arkestra did nothing but make noise. Excellent.'
