Between 1953 and 1960, readers of Down Beat magazine decided that Don Elliott was the greatest miscellaneous instrumentalist of the time (more info). Now, few remember him, but his unique virtuosity on the mellophone; his gifts as a trumpeter, vibraphonist, and vocalist; and his talent as a composer and producer deserve modern recognition.
I, Eliott Rosenbeg, dedicate this website to Don Elliott, the world's greatest mellophonist.
