Abbey Is Blue is the fourth album by American jazz vocalist Abbey Lincoln featuring tracks recorded in 1959 for the Riverside label.

Allmusic awarded the album 4½ stars, with the review by Scott Yanow stating: “Abbey Lincoln is quite emotional and distinctive during a particularly strong set… very memorable”. All About Jazz also gave the album 4½ stars, with David Rickert calling it “a breakthrough performance in jazz singing”, and observing: “With the civil rights movement looming over the horizon, no longer did singers need to stick with standards and Tin Pan Alley tunes and could truly sing about subjects that mattered to them. Lincoln picked up Billie Holiday’s skill at inhabiting the lyrics of a song and projecting its emotional content outward, and these songs, all of which deal with sorrow, are stark and harrowing accounts of loss and injustice.”
