What is the Ellington® font?
Michael Harvey designed Ellington for Monotype in 1990. Ellington (named after jazz musician and composer, Duke Ellington) is a text typeface that has a definite calligraphic influence that creates a lively and interesting page.
Harvey, a stone carver and lettering artist, is sensitive to the needs of graphic designers, and so designed Ellington with a tall x-height and narrow width, making it accommodating for both economy of space in short texts, and for display work as well.

Most fonts on Jorgensen-Fonts.com are premium, which means that Ellington® is not a free font.
You won't be able to find Ellington® as a free download, so I suggest that you just go ahead and pay for it and download Ellington® HERE. You can find some other great options here on Jorgensen-fonts.com as well that will save you time looking around all over the web.
It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for Ellington® are that you get the license, and if you're caught using it illegally there could be some potential legal implications with the publisher of this particular typeface.
Furthermore, when searching "free downloads" on Google, most websites will say they have them but these types of offers usually come at a cost - either something like high-pressure sales tactics or getting tricked into downloading malware onto your computer by malicious third parties who want access to all your personal information!
It's just too risky going about finding free fonts online.
