Tony Scott (born Anthony Joseph Sciacca June 17, 1921 – March 28, 2007) was an American jazz clarinetist and arranger known for an interest in folk music around the world. For most of his career he was held in high esteem in new-age music circles because of his decades-long involvement in music linked to Asian cultures and to meditation.

In New Age circles, he is known for his albums Music for Zen Meditation (1964) and Music for Yoga Meditation and Other Joys (1968).
