Robert Naughton (born June 25, 1944) is an American jazz vibraphonist.
Born in Boston, he played piano beginning at age seven. In the 1960s he played piano in rock and lounge outfits before serving in the Army, where he played organ. Following his discharge he attended art school and studied painting.
In 1966, he began playing vibraphone, and before the end of the decade played with Perry Robinson, and Sheila Jordan. He began releasing material on his own label, Otic Records, in 1969. He assisted filmmaker Hans Richter, writing the score to the silent film Everyday, which he had filmed in 1929. In 1972 he played in the Jazz Composers Orchestra, and from 1973 until the beginning of the 1980s he played with Wadada Leo Smith. From 1978 to 1982 he toured with Anthony Braxton in the Creative Music Orchestra.
