George Arthur Probert, Jr. (b. March 5, 1927, Los Angeles) is an American jazz clarinetist, soprano saxophonist, and bandleader active principally on the Dixieland jazz revival circuit.

Probert was an autodidact on his instruments. He played with Bob Scobey (1950-53) and then with Kid Ory's Creole Jazz Band. Between 1954 to 1969, he played in the Firehouse Five Plus Two Dixieland revival band, an ensemble formed by animators from Walt Disney Studios, and recorded with Disney composer George Bruns in 1957 and again in 1968. Probert led his own bands from 1973, touring America and Europe, especially The Netherlands.
