Bassist Kyle Eastwood, the son of film director Clint Eastwood, inherited his father’s well-known love of jazz music, becoming a respected bass session player during the early ’90s. Later fronting his own quartet, he contributed a track to the 1997 Eastwood After Hours: Live at Carnegie Hall tribute LP, and a year later issued his solo debut, From There to Here. He then returned with the pop and soul-influenced Paris Blue in 2005, Now in 2006, and Metropolitain in 2009.
Along with performing, Eastwood has composed songs for movies like “Million Dollar Baby,” “Mystic River,” “Letters From Iwo Jima,” “Changeling,” “Invictus,” and “Gran Torino.”
Eastwood credits his interest in music to his Dad and admits that being the son of a celebrity allowed him to meet jazz stars like Sarah Vaughan and Dizzy Gillespie at a young age and that influenced his music.
Eastwood’s most recent release is titled Songs From The Chateau and was released in April of 2011.
