Dear Elliott (sic),
I did work with Don Elliott in New York,during the 50's and 60's. A wonderful musician, a good singer, and a good friend. When I moved to the West Coast in 1966, I lost contact with Don.
When we first worked together, he was my favorite vibraphone player. Also I was able to get him on a series called "The Subject is Jazz" for PBS.
Good luck with your project,

Interview with Don Elliott by Stanley Rosner:
In 1974, Stanley Rosner conducted an hour-long interview with Don Elliott, exploring the roots of creativity. The audio is available in Yale University's Oral History of American Music (OHAM) collection. If you happen to be in New Haven, I encourage you to make an appointment with OHAM and listen to the interview. An edited transcript of the interview is also available in Rosner's book, The Creative Expression, which you can purchase on Amazon.
