Lafayette Gilchrist (born August 3, 1967) is an American jazz pianist and composer. Originally from Washington DC, he has lived in Baltimore since age 17. He has had a long association with saxophonist David Murray, with whom he has toured internationally. Gilchrist leads an octet/nonet named the New Volcanoes and a trio called Inside Out (with bassist Michael Formanek and drummer Eric Kennedy).

An NPR reviewer commented that Gilchrist's "two-handed piano . . . has techno and minimalism behind it. It's not just about the notes; it's also about the waves in which they come, and the troughs in between.” Gilchrist says "I'm always seeking a dialogue between popular rhythms and the improvising process. For me to make personal music, I have to come out of the music I grew up with and love, and that's hip-hop and go-go.”

Lafayette has released 15 albums as leader including his most recent album of solo piano called “Now,” released in 2020.
