Our own Elisha Gullixson was featured at a concert last night at Teatro Principal, a beautiful, 600 seat auditorium in Puebla, Mexico, last night. It was one of the many arts events at this 14th Subud World Congress. He played piano in a quintet led by NYC Subud alto saxophonist Benjamin Drazen and thrilled the packed house. Some Mexicanas backstage wanted to know when they were playing again. Elisha’s solo on St. Thomas was particularly inspired and their appearance was one of the evening’s highlights.
Applying the Downbeat (jazz) Magazine’s blindfold test to the meal afterwards, Elisha pronounced it “Cinco Estrellas.”
