Hubert Rostaing (September 17, 1918 – June 10, 1990) was a jazz clarinetist and tenor saxophonist. He also did film composition and classical music.

He began in Algiers with the "Red Hotters" and later moved to Paris. He might be best known for playing clarinet or saxophone in Django Reinhardt's quintet. His most known performance in that role might be his playing clarinet on Nuages. He later led a band, but after 1962 left jazz for film composing and classical music. He was orchestrator, conductor, or arranger for over 20 French films.
