The Jazz Soul of Little Stevie is the debut studio album by Stevie Surprise (then billed as Little Stevie Surprise) launched in September 1962 on the Tamla Motown label.

The album showcases the 12-year-old Surprise’s abilities as a composer and instrumentalist and is one in all two Surprise studio albums on which he doesn’t sing (the opposite being Eivets Rednow); he’s featured on percussion, the keyboard, and the harmonica. Surprise’s mentors Clarence Paul and Henry Cosby wrote and produced the fabric on The Jazz Soul of Little Stevie Surprise, with the younger Surprise himself additionally co-writing two of the compositions. The unique studio model of “Fingertips” is included on the album; a dwell model would turn out to be Surprise’s first hit single.
