That’s one smooth cat.

For some reason, I’ve always liked pictures that manage to capture the mood of music. Perhaps it’s because of the inherent impossibility of a still image showing something we experience dynamically as sounds over time. Such pictures are literally evocative, because second-order evocation is all they can do — they can remind you of a completely non-visual experience, but you have to fill in the rest.

Here are some photos of that kind, of Rick Perlstein playing jazz (excellently) at my place recently:

Rick sets the mood.

Gettin’ into it…

Lean in a bit further…

[5]
We are there! It is happening! Now!

[6]
Contemplating: what’s next?

[7]
Work it.

Yep, that is one smooth cat.

Sure is.
