Kyle Eastwood Dinner Jazz Concert
Mount Vernon Country Club is fortunate to welcome back bassist, composer, Kyle Eastwood and his band, Wednesday, March 12th.
Wednesday, March 12th
6:00 - 10:00 pm
Having grown up the eldest son of Clint Eastwood, Kyle was exposed to Jazz from a very young age and on. His father made attending the Monterey Jazz Festival an annual family affair. Although Kyle initially studied film, his true passion was Jazz. As a composer, Eastwood contributed to the film score for Mystic River. The film received two Oscars. Since then he has composed music and soundtracks for several Clint Eastwood films including Million Dollar Baby, Gran Torino and Invictus.
He began his recording career in 1998 with his sixth and most recent, The View From Here on the JazzVillage label. Eastwood states “I’ve always loved music from other countries. Living in France, you hear a lot of North African and Middle Eastern music and you can hear those influences on this new recording.” His compositions resonate with swing, groove and funk overtones. The lyrical bassist will be performing with his world wide touring quintet.
