Anatie "Natty" Dominique (August 2, 1896 – August 30, 1982[1]) was a jazz trumpeter born in New Orleans, Louisiana most notable for his long body of work with Johnny Dodds.

Dominique was a pupil of the legendary Manuel Perez, moving to Chicago, Illinois in 1913. For a brief time in the 1940s Dominique stopped performing and began working as a porter at the Chicago Airport. In the 1950s, however, Dominique began playing again in his own Creole Dance Band which featured Johnny's younger brother Baby Dodds, among others. He was active throughout the 1960s, and rarely performed after that time.[citation needed]
