Garvin Bushell (1902 – 1991) was an American woodwind multi-instrumentalist.
Though never a major name in jazz, Bushell had a lengthy career from the music's early era, to the avant garde of the 1960s.
Bushell was born in Springfield, Ohio. He played both jazz and classical music on clarinet, alto clarinet, oboe, english horn, flute, saxophone, bassoon, and contrabassoon.
He was best known as a jazz sideman with people such as Perry Bradford, and performed and/or recorded with many of jazz's great names, such as Fletcher Henderson, Bunk Johnson, Fats Waller, Cab Calloway, Eric Dolphy, Gil Evans, and John Coltrane.
He eventually settled in Las Vegas, Nevada, where he worked as a music teacher. He was married to Louise Bushell until his death in 1991, and had two sons with her.
