What is in the near future?
My sister, Konnie Ellis, just wrote a book called Rory's Story. It tells about growing up one of four blind siblings, touring and recording with the family band, and lots of other stuff which led up to me deciding to try to be a professional musician. Along with the book, I've just finished compiling a companion CD that will feature a lot of these old studio recordings. I also perform (when I'm in town) with three swing bands around Nashville...the Carolyn Martin Swing band, Paul Kramer and Swing Street, and Nashville's premier gypsy jazz group, the Gypsy Hombres.

If I weren't a jazz musician, I would be a:
jazzier musician.
