The Don Ellis Reader

The Don Ellis estate has kindly given us their blessing to present some of his writings to the World-Wide Web. This effort was spearheaded by Scott Harris of Santa Cruz, California who secured the permission and entered the text.

The articles below provide only a small sample of the material we have available. This list will be greatly expanded in the near future.
