Jimmy Wade was an American jazz trumpeter and bandleader.
Wade began leading groups in the Chicago area about 1916. He played in California and Seattle, Washington with Lucille Hegamin, and then moved with her to New York City, where they played together until 1922. When he returned to Chicago, he played with Doc Cooke, and then put together another group of his own, Jimmy Wade's Syncopators. Eddie South played in this ensemble from 1924 to 1927; other noted sidemen were Punch Miller and Alex Hill, both of whom recorded with him in 1928, and Darnell Howard.
Wade spent most of his career as a bandleader, though reissues of his material are usually done under the names of his more famous sidemen.
