Johnny Pate (born December 5, 1923, Chicago Heights, Illinois) is a jazz bassist who late became a music arranger/producer, and a leading figure in Chicago soul as well as pop/R&B music. Pate learned to play piano and tuba as a child, and later picked up the bass and learned arranging while serving in the Army. Following stints with Coleridge Davis and Stuff Smith in the 1940s, in 1951 Pate was recording on Chess Records with Eddie South and his Orchestra, credited on bass and arrangements. This was also the first of a series of Chess recordings on which Pate collaborated with saxophonist Eddie Johnson. In the 1950s he was also a resident arranger for Red Saunders' house band at the Club DeLisa.
