George Kelly (31 July 1915 – 24 May 1998) was an American jazz tenor saxophonist, vocalist and arranger born in Miami, Florida, perhaps best known for his works with Panama Francis first in the 1930s and again in the 1970s, the latter dates representing a newly formed “Savoy Sultans”. Additionally, Kelly led his own bands and worked with other jazz artists such as Gene Krupa, Rex Stewart and Cozy Cole, among others.
