Biography

Kyle grew up in Carmel California and is the eldest son of the Hollywood star Clint Eastwood. While doing his homework Kyle remembers listening to records of jazz stars such as Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Miles Davis playing in the house. Like any child raised by enthusiastic jazz loving parents, an awareness and love of music soaks in quickly. Until he was about ten years old jazz was the only music he listened to and as far as he was concerned the only music that he knew existed! Eastwood senior had been attending the Monterey Jazz Fest since it began in 1958 and when his children were born it became a yearly family outing as it was only fifteen minutes away from where they lived.

Being the son of one of the most famous men in the world gave Kyle immediate access backstage to meet huge jazz stars who were performing at that time such as Dizzy Gillespie, Stan Getz, Buddy Rich, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and many more. Kyle’s childhood had jazz as its soundtrack and he credits his father with introducing him to the joys of the bassline. Kyle’s first memory of playing music was when Clint taught him how to play the left hand bass line of Boogie Woogie while he played the right hand solo over the top.

    @Louis, I know it's been over a year, but I have an answer to your question. It's Jamie Cullum Featuring Clint Eastwood
