Ellis Larkins

"You have to have patience, that's the most important thing -- patience with yourself especially. (There's) a tendency to go for yourself and you forget all about the other person." (Ellis Larkins)

Ellis Larkins was a wonderful Jazz pianist with a light touch who worked as an accompanist, most notably for Ella Fitzgerald.
