SORT BY Relevancy
October 16 - Bassist/Composer - Kyle Eastwood
Among other things, Kyle Eastwood comes from a musical family. Both parents, Clint Eastwood and Maggie Johnson, played the piano; and, his maternal grandmother taught music at Northwestern University. So, I guess one can say that his entry into the realm of music was inevitable.
Accompanied by a London-based crew of stellar young musicians, Eastwood and company blend infectious grooves and outstanding improvisations throughout eleven diverse tracks on The View From Here. “They’re all really talented players,” says Eastwood, “and we’ve been playing together for a while now, developing a real band chemistry. We ended up writing a lot of these new tunes together either at rehearsals or out on the road during last year’s tour around Europe. Sometimes I would come up with a couple of ideas or Andrew might bring something in, then everybody would just add on to it after that.”
Kyle's latest CD, The View From Here, is as true to the genre, and culture of Jazz as one can get in these modern times. The pulsating rhythms being extracted from his band's acoustic instruments, are not only pure and exact, but seem to represent a symbolic life source for both the band, and its listeners.
Guests include Fred Karger, political consultant, gay rights activist on the SCOTUS pass on marriage equality and the upcoming mid-term elections. Dr. Brent M. Eastwood, founder of GovBrain, Inc. that automatically predicts financial market prices based on government and political events on ISIS impact on economyy. Gayle Falkenthal returns to talk about the new falls shows, including Walking Dead being picked up for another season.

From the new E! hit reality show, "Mrs. Eastwood & Company," Francesca Eastwood will join me to talk about her busy life as reality show star, celebrity photographer (and boyfriend) Tyler Shields' muse, college student, and daughter of arguably one of the greatest cinematic icons of this generation, Academy Award-winning actor/director, Clint Eastwood. Opinionated and artistic, the 19-year old Francesca Eastwood, is daughter of actress Frances Fisher and Clint, but also calls Dina Eastwood “mom.” A bit of a free spirit and an adventure seeker, Francesca is in a serious relationship with her 29-year old boyfriend, famed celebrity photographer Tyler Shields. She is his muse; he is her passion. Deeply in love, the couple has been together since 2011 and as a result, Francesca’s world and her relationships are changing. Fully embracing her new-found freedom as a young adult living on her own in Los Angeles, Francesca is currently enrolled at USC, but believes that life’s biggest lessons happen through experience and not in a classroom. The rebellious blonde likes to travel, try new things and appreciates the finer things in life, including high-end fashions. E! cameras follow the surprisingly relatable daily life of super-mom Dina Eastwood as she juggles the ups and downs of an impressionable teenage daughter, Morgan, struggles with her skepticism of Francesca’s older and rebellious boyfriend, planning family vacations, organizing school carpools, and getting dinner on the table. Dina has also taken on a true passion project by virtually adopting the band Overtone, and spending her very limited spare time preparing this group of handsome, wide-eyed young men for possible life-changing opportunities. www.eonline.com/shows/mrseastwoodandco/

Vincent Eastwood (AKA MR. NEWS) was born in the ominous year of 1984 The same year set out in Orwell's masterpiece and the year of New Zealand's neo-liberal economic reforms. After working in the telecommunications industry he quit when he noticed that when he lied to the customer the companies profit margins went up. Unable to work or have an employer in the conventional sense Vincent went out with frustration at the mainstream media and began to make his own news by interviewing activists about real issues that truly affect New Zealand and the world. The idea is to get the activists who live and breathe the issues and are not bound by corporate or political parties to be the pundits, reporters and watch-dogs on the multi-faceted agendas of the global elite right here at home. He hopes to one day be part of an alternative media revolution that will replace the mainstream media with something that's relevant.

Prolific Bassist/Composer Kyle Eastwoodchannels his earliest Jazz influences on The View From Here,
available March 12 on JazzVillage
It has been 15 years since bassist Kyle Eastwood burst onto the jazz scene with his 1998 debut, From There To Here. At that moment in his budding career, the press seemed more preoccupied with his paternal lineage (he’s the son of famed actor-director Clint Eastwood) than his music. Over the course of the four subsequent releases – 2004′s Paris Blue, 2005′s Now, 2009′s Metropolitan and 2011′s Songs from the Chateau – Eastwood built up an impressive body of work while earning respect in musician circles. With his sixth release as a leader, The View From Here on the JazzVillage label, he demonstrates a strong command of both electric and upright basses while expanding into more adventurous territory that is informed as much by jazz as it is by world music. “I’ve always loved music from other countries,” says the Carmel, California native who has resided in Paris for the past eight years. “Living in France, you hear a lot of North African and Middle Eastern music, and you can hear some of those influences on this new recording.”

When Kyle Eastwood was growing up - near the sea in Northern California - he remembers visiting legends backstage at the Monterey Jazz Festival. Dad was a huge fan of All that was Jazz - and he had made it a point to take his kids to an event that he had hoped they would enjoy as much as he had. Turns out that DAD made the right decision :-D
Kyle learned his first bass line, left-handed, when his father taught him "Boogie Woogie." Rumor has it that he was four! Like a fish to water, so was the pull of that instrument to our artist. In high school, he went electric - and learned to play Motown and Reggae songs by ear.
Fortunate to be able to study with French bassist, Bunny Brunel, Kyle also found a calling to write for films. And he has (as many know) worked on MANY soundtracks through the years. But his heart has been wrapped around Jazz - and what it can be. He absolutely reveres its background - but Kyle is coming from a different place. Literally. Now living in France, he hears the leanings of Northern Africa and the Mid-East - and incorporates those global inspirations into the mix. SO, after five joyfully received projects - you're about to enjoy the fruit of ALL of his inspirations - with the release of "The View From Here" (3/12).
It has been 15 years since "From There to Here" - a debut that was (understandably) overshadowed by the knowledge that Kyle had a Dad who has been a superstar for decades. But his bloodline also includes his Mom, Maggie, who was also musically inclined. And HER Mom was a Music Teacher at Northwestern University. So that 1998 debut became a buzz that grew into huge acceptance. This is someone who has demonstrated extraordinary skill and passion. And you're about to hear MORE of it :) Join us on 2/27 at one p.m. EST!
Many artists do not know what it means to be original. However, one artist knows that originality comes from telling a true story. Gymini is a story teller like Slick Rick was back in the days. His listeners can relate to his songs because they feel like they know him although they have never met him. This grown man doesn’t portray an alter ego in the limelight. He has the ability to boldly express music from a directly honest point of view, but yet understanding and passionate. Gymini said, “I will make you feel like you have known me your whole life.” His style, “high energy” is a variation of hip hop crunk mixed with a heavy metal sound that captivates all audiences.
Maurice Harmon, a child of God, now known as Gymini, the original ambassador of hip hop was born and raised on the west side of Savannah, Georgia in the project of Fellwood Homes where most of his lyrics derived from. He grew up in a crowed home of 11 brothers and 12 sisters so he didn’t get the undivided attention that most children want to have with their mother, so instead of developing a bad behavior, he took his pain onto the stage and started gaining attention from his audience. Gymini kept his crowd screaming by his raw and uncut stage performances at the age of
18. He is truly an artist with no gimmicks. He was inspired by many, but Ice T taught him everything that he needed to know about the music game. Gymini started his acting career in 1989 with a standing ovation by appearing in many films, “Glory” with Denzel Washington; “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil” with Moran Freeman and directed by Clint Eastwood in 1997; and “The Legend of Bagger Vance” with Will Smith, Matt Damon, and Charlize Theron in 2000. Gymini was honored to receive the Key to the City of Vidalia, Georgia. Twitter @GyminiMrMusic
