Eddy Louiss (born 2 May 1941 in Paris) is a French jazz musician.

His primary instrument is the Hammond organ. As a vocalist, he was a member of Les Double Six of Paris from 1961 through 1963.[1]

He has worked with Kenny Clarke, René Thomas, and Jean-Luc Ponty.[2] In 1971 he was a member of the Stan Getzquartet (with René Thomas and Bernard Lubat)[3] that recorded the celebrated Getz album Dynasty.

In duet, he has recorded with pianist Michel Petrucciani (1994)[4] and accordionist Richard Galliano (2002). His more recent recordings—for example, Sentimental Feeling and Récit proche—combine jazz with rock and world music.

In 1964, he was awarded the Prix Django Reinhardt.[5]
