Jazz Enthralled @ PI.

I always wondered why jazz is sometimes hypnotizing. A recent jazz experience gave me a chance to find an answer.

During last Friday PI Event Horizons Bistro Jazz performance of
Joe Sealy and Paul Novotny Trio I realized that jazz helps the listener resonate with some inner feelings. Maybe that is why jazz improvisations are so fascinating. The performer is like a soul trails opener, mesmerizing the audience into inner exploration of a space where time doesn‘t exist. It is like riding a bike as Sealy confessed. Then the performer awakes you from this pleasant and captivating ride. Some of the Sealy’s pieces made me live the jazz hypnosis.

His diversified show ended in a grand finale style with a piece about hope, as an invitation for hope that we learn from past mistakes and hope for a better and peaceful future, as he put it.
