Kyle Eastwood On West Coast Tour With "Time Pieces"
Jazz bassist and composer Kyle Eastwood and his talented band return to the U.S. to tour in September, with concerts in Los Angeles, Seattle, the Monterey Jazz Festival and more. The largely West Coast tour also includes a stop in Denver, CO.
Eastwood's latest album "Time Pieces", available now on Jazz Village, has been called a "grand return" (Chicago Sun-Times) and "nothing short of amazing" (Smooth Jazz Magazine). The St. Louis Dispatch hailed it as "hard-charging bop delivered with energy and attitude...this is straight-ahead jazz of the first order," while The Buffalo News wrote, "The soloing here is plentiful, robust...blistering and virtuosic, whether the tune is fusion or hard bop."

"'Blowin' the Blues Away' receives a joyful, heady performance with virtuoso riffs from all players in the quintet...Its enthusiastic, hard-driving precision is hard to resist; it is my favorite cut on the album."
