Eddy Louiss (May 2, 1941 – June 30, 2015) was a French jazz musician.

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

He worked with Kenny Clarke, René Thomas, and Jean-Luc Ponty. He was a member of the Stan Getz quartet (with René Thomas and Bernard Lubat) that recorded the Getz album Dynasty (1971).

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

In 1964, he was awarded the Prix Django Reinhardt.
