Ray Abrams (born Ray Abramson on January 23, 1920 in New York City[1] - died July 1992) was a jazz and jump blues tenor saxophonist. His brother was jazz drummer Lee Abrams. He first worked with Dizzy Gillespie in 1946 and later with Andy Kirk. He would go back and forth between these two for decades.[2] Outside of his work with Gillespie he might be best known for the "Ray Abrams Big Band."[3]
