Kenyon Hopkins (January 15, 1912 – April 7, 1983) was an American composer who composed many film scores in a jazz idiom. Although he has been neglected in recent years, he was once called "one of jazz's great composers and arrangers". Hopkins also composed various works, including Symphony Number 1 and Number 2, chamber music and the jazz ballet "Rooms" for Anna Sokolow. He recorded several albums for ABC Paramount Records, Cadence Records, Capitol Records and Verve Records during the 1960s. Many of his soundtrack recordings were released on LP, including that for the 1956 film Baby Doll, which was re-released on CD.
