American musician, a jazz trumpeter, drummer and composer. A "wunderkind" of jazz, Ellis is one of the great innovators of music that he plays with his own band in local gigs and world tours. His trademarks for a film score are rhythmical complexity, sophistication and a joyful musical energy such as he delivered for "The French Connection," 1971.

Ellis had a severe heart attack in 1975 and took a year off to recover, giving up entirely the high energy output of playing drums. He died of a heart attack 12/17/1978, North Hollywood, CA.
