Chris Minh Doky (born 7 February 1969) is a Vietnamese-Danish jazz bassist.[1] He is the younger brother of jazz pianist Niels Lan Doky.[2] He released his first album, Appreciation, in 1989[3] four years after picking up the instrument.

As a sideman, he has collaborated with Mike Stern,[4]Michael Brecker,[5]Trilok Gurtu, Ryuichi Sakamoto,[6] and David Sanborn.

His sound is often described as a blend of his native Scandinavian tradition with the feel of his adopted homeland, the United States.[7] His wife Tanja is a lady-in-waiting to Denmark's Crown Princess Mary.
