Louis Metcalf (February 28, 1905 - October 27, 1981) was a jazz cornetist and trumpeter.

Trumpeter Louis Metcalf, best known for playing with Duke Ellington's Orchestra back in 1927, was active into the 1970s. He recorded some isolated sides for Franwill, Stere-O-Craft and Pickwick in 1954-55, 1958 and 1963, but his only full-length album was also his final recording, this 1966 LP. Joined by pianist Sonny White, guitarist Jerome Patterson, bassist Al Matthews, drummer Nelson Cannon and (on one song) label president/singer Victoria Spivey. Metcalf plays seven originals, one by Spivey, and two standards in a style that is surprisingly boppish. Although long forgotten by the 1960s, Metcalf had continued to advance with time, and it is a pity that he was not more fully documented. This increasingly rare LP is worth exploring.
