Kyle Eastwood grew up in Carmel, California, as the eldest son of actor Clint Eastwood. As a child he listened to records of jazz stars such as Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Miles Davis playing in the house. His father had been attending the Monterey Jazz Festival since it began in 1958 and when his children were born it became a yearly family outing. His latest album, ”The View From Here” (Jazzvillage, Harmonia Mundi), embraces this musical heritage which goes back to the soundtrack of his youth when his father
introduced him to the joys of the bass line.


In the last 10 years, Kyle has toured extensively around the world, performing at the likes of The Olympia (Paris), Jazz in Marciac (France), The Monterey Jazz Festival (California), The Jurasum Festival (South Korea), the Blue Notes in Tokyo and New York, Kampnagel (Hamburg) and Ronnie Scott’s (London). The music resonates with swing, groove and funk overtones; "my roots remain in jazz but I like adding all kinds of different flavours" said Kyle.


Today Kyle Eastwood is less and less the son of Clint and more of a universally respected musician and leader in his own right. A virtuoso bassist on electric and upright as well as a talented composer with a keen ear for great tunes as well as the subtleties of modern jazz, he is right at the forefront of the contemporary scene, having chosen to immerse himself in the music he loves.
