Joseph Henry Gordon (May 15, 1928 in Boston, Massachusetts – November 4, 1963 in Santa Monica, California) was an American jazz trumpeter.

His first professional gigs were in Boston in 1947; he played with Georgie Auld, Charlie Mariano, Lionel Hampton, Charlie Parker (1953–55 intermittently), Art Blakey (1954), and Don Redman. In 1956 he toured the Middle East with Dizzy Gillespie's big band; he was a soloist on "A Night in Tunisia". Following this he played with Horace Silver. After moving to Los Angeles, he recorded with Barney Kessel, Benny Carter, Harold Land, Shelly Manne (195860) and Dexter Gordon. He recorded as a bandleader for two sessions, and appeared on one recording from Thelonious Monk.

He died in a house fire in 1963.
