Fred Wesley (born July 4, 1943) is an American jazz and funk trombonist, best known for his work with James Brown in the 1960s and 1970s, as well as Parliament-Funkadelic in the second half of the 1970's.

The J.B.'s (sometimes punctuated The JB's or The J.B.s) were James Brown's band during the first half of the 1970s.
