Jazz Village, 2020, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Bebop
O’s Notes: Bassist Kyle Eastwood loves movies and so it’s fitting for him to satisfy his passion with Cinematic, eleven fresh takes of movie scores. His band is a quintet with Quentin Collins (t, flugelhorn), Brandon Allen (sax), Andrew McCormack (p) and Chris Higginbottom (d). The music is expressive, stimulating, and it facilitates reminiscing some of the flicks. Camille Bertault adds vocals on “Les Moulins De Mon Coeur” as does Hugh Coleman on “Gran Torino”. Our favorites are “Charade” and “Pink Panther -Theme” with the sax/trumpet suspense.
