The In Sound is a 1965 album by jazz arranger and vibraphonist Gary McFarland produced by Creed Taylor.


Douglas Payne reviewed the album for AllMusic writing that the album was "chock full of brief, enjoyable tunes that stick with you. Guitarist Gabor Szabo is a perfect partner and makes a memorable combination with McFarland's mellifluous vibraphone" and that it was a "more comfortable mix of McFarland's vocalese pop and jazz than the more successful Soft Samba".

The initial Billboard magazine review from December 4, 1965 commented that McFarland "knows that musicianship has to broadened to include humor and an awareness of the current mood to develop listener rapport. He does just that in this outstanding package that features some highly original and attractive material as well as a number of key sidemen who know what he's trying to say and help him say it".
