A Tribute to Stuff Smith is an album by the American jazz violinist Billy Bang recorded in 1992 featuring Sun Ra, John Ore and Andrew Cyrille and released on the Italian Soul Note label.



The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 4 stars stating "Ra was a bit hemmed in by the concept, and his conception of time was different than Bang's, so there is a certain amount of tension in the music. Also, Billy Bang has a much rougher sound and a freer style than Stuff Smith, but the end results are well worth hearing".
