Sam Lazar (born 1933) was an American pianist and Hammond organist originally from St. Louis, Missouri, United States. A mysterious figure who disappeared from the music scene in the early 1960s, he is best known for fronting a group that included early work from guitarist Grant Green. Lazar's career was heavily influenced by fellow organist Jimmy Smith.
