I have lost touch with my friend Ellis. Can anyone help? I am from Baltimore and I was wondering how he was doing.

No, if you watch The Marsalis Family: A Jazz Celebration and watch the interviews it mentions him his name is Ellis the III he works with computers, yeah he’s younger than Wynton and older than Delfeayo. =)

Thank you for follwing up. He used to live in Baltimore. He is the only brother that is not involved with music except for one other brother.

No, but I will try. I know when Ellis used to work in NY he would stay at Wynton’s house.

did you find your friend?  He’s in Baltimore.  If you check out the Urbanite Magazine (Baltimore)  they list him as an “up and comer” in the March issue.

Peace
