As the son of actor/director/jazz fan, Clint Eastwood, Kyle Eastwood grew up listening to jazz. In this performance-interview hosted by Abe Beeson, Kyle talks about a childhood trip to The Monterey Jazz Festival and how hearing the Count Basie Big Band that day inspired him to become a bass player.

For the past few years, Eastwood’s home base has been in France. He and Abe discuss the differences between European and America music listeners … and how living in Europe has influenced Kyle’s music composition.

Eastwood wrote all three songs that are performed in this session. Marciac and Andalucia are from an as-yet-untitled CD that will be released in the near future. Song For You is included on his most recent release, Metropolitain.
