well, I don't need to understand the "gesture" or what's going through his mind to know that it doesn't necessarily have to be translated physically. It happens to some classical pianists as well, that they move a lot and put strange faces but that doesn't make them play better that the ones who don't, it's just some kind of help. But it's a help that looks really bad, really distracting from the music itself. But anyway, don't get me wrong, it's not like I was criticizing him, I just found it curious, after all this comes from someone who loves Keith Jarrett despite his totally anoying singing along.
