Mitchell Herbert "Herb" Ellis (August 4, 1921 - March 28, 2010) was an American jazz guitarist. Perhaps best known for his 1950's membership in the trio of pianist Oscar Peterson, Ellis was also a staple of west-coast studio recording sessions, and was described by critic Scott Yannow as "an excellent bop-based guitarist with a slight country twang to his sound."
