He’s played with the legendary Dizzy Gillespie and worked with the off-Broadway satirical review “Forbidden Broadway,” which included Glee guest stars Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth.

Ellis worked with Robert Ulrich before when he was casting a show that was all Elton John music that Shaun Cassidy was creating, so Ulrich thought of him for Glee. He was a guest performer for the Harvard Pops Orchestra concert.

Ellis has been profiled by CNN, NPR, USA Today, Entertainment Weekly, People Magazine and The Boston Globe.
