Calvin James Jones, Sr. (September 27, 1929 – October 10, 2004) was an American trombonist, bassist, pianist, composer, and educator. Born in Chicago and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, Jones moved to Washington, D.C. in the 1970s and remained there until his death from a heart attack in October 2004.[1]

He is not to be confused with the American blues bassist Calvin "Fuzz" Jones (1926–2010).
