In Transit (Bonus Track Version) by Kyle Eastwood on Apple Music

12 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Bassist Kyle Eastwood, son of longtime jazz advocate Clint Eastwood, plays like someone with the music in his blood. Based in Paris, he fronts a quintet of fiery British musicians, including trumpeter Quentin Collins, saxophonist Brandon Allen, and pianist Andrew McCormack. Saxophonist Stefano di Battista guests on four tracks, including Ennio Morricone’s surpassingly melodic “Cinema Paradiso (Love Theme).” A gritty, soulfully swinging mood prevails, not least on “Rockin’ Ronnie’s” and the Count Basie gem “Blues in Hoss’ Flat.”

About Kyle Eastwood

Bassist Kyle Eastwood is an in-demand perfomer and bandleader whose sound straddles the line between straight-ahead acoustic post-bop and contemporary jazz. The son of legendary actor Clint Eastwood, Eastwood inherited his father's well-known love of jazz music, becoming a respected session player during the early '90s; later fronting his own quartet. In 1998, he issued his solo debut, From There to Here. He then returned with the pop- and soul-influenced Paris Blue in 2005 and Now in 2006. Three years later, Eastwood delivered the contemporary-leaning Metropolitain, which featured appearances by drummer Manu Katche, keyboardist Eric Legnini, and trumpeter Till Brönner.

Also during this period, he also supplied music to several of his father's films including Letters to Iwo Jima, Invictus, and J. Edgar. He then paired with trumpeter Graeme Flowers and saxophonist Graeme Blevins for 2011's Songs from the Chateau. The bassist then signed with the Jazz Village label and delivered 2013's The View From Here, followed by 2015's Timepieces. In 2017, he returned with his eighth studio-album, In Transit, featuring a guest apperance by saxophonist Stefano Di Battista. ~ Jason Ankeny
