Parallel Worlds is the debut album by trumpeter Dave Douglas released on the Italian Soul Note label in 1993.[2] It features six of Douglas' compositions and compositions by Anton Webern, Kurt Weill, Duke Ellington and Igor Stravinsky performed by Douglas, Mark Feldman, Erik Friedlander, Mark Dresser and Michael Sarin.


The Allmusic review by Ron Wynn states "This isn't another hard bop outing or a completely free-wheeling session; instead, it's got elements of both, and a departure as well. It requires close scrutiny and a completely open mind, because Dave Douglas is following no direction except his own".[3]
