Kobi Arad (Internationally Acclaimed pianist - composer / Stevie Wonder Collaborator) is the first musician to receive Doctorate in the field of Third Stream / Contemporary Improvisation from New England Conservatory. A Grammy Awards voting member - he recently won the Holywood Music in Media Awards for Best Jazz (Sketches of Monk); Independent Music Awards for Jazz Instrumental Album (Segments), LIT Talent Awards (Gold) for Best Experimental Video& Global Music Awards (Silver Medal) for World Music (Makams - Places).

This video brings together Creative Jazz with Sensuality and primal ecstatic dance, joy and exploration.

The original aesthetic world of Jazz emerged from Africa, as pulsating rhythms and ritual dance which often utilize strong primal impact, libido and base human impulse.

In recent decades, the genre of Jazz has been mainly confined to intellectual music endeavors - which are somehow divorced from the African world of sensuality.

In this music video, Kobi Arad combines both worlds together: Esoteric and refined sonic landscapes ("Anchor Lines", melodic / harmonic Segment unfolds, through improvisation, into a full-blown composition) - Together with a sensual / sexy dance by four attractive girls, sparkling with joy and excitement.

This video is also a landmark for Arad in integrating the contrasting elements of abstract Jazz, together with primal ecstatic sensuality, which both co-exist within his creative psyche - as well as humanity as a whole.

"Wonderful Artist! You've Created an Harmonic Language All Your Own!"


- Chick Corea
