Biography:

The son of legendary actor Clint Eastwood, Eastwood inherited his father's well-
known love of jazz music. With a dozen albums to his credit, Kyle Eastwood did not
give in on his desire. If he appeared, younger, on the screens, he decided at the
end of the adolescence to devote himself to jazz. While composing several musics
for his father, Clint Eastwood (Mystic River, Million Dollar Baby or Letters From Iwo
Jima), he confirmed his career as a leader over the years. Bass and double - bass
player, he remains faithful to a traditional and melodic approach to jazz, which he
often enriches with lyrical ornaments.

'Cinema is my second passion' he admits. Cinétamic, his latest album released in
November 2019, therefore leans on original film tracks including the theme of Taxi
Driver, written by Bernard Hermann, the soundtrack of Moulins de mon coeur, a
nostalgic hymn by Michel Legrand, the theme of Gran Torino, composed by
Eastwood father and son and the famous Pink Panther Theme by Henry Mancini as
well as Ennio Morricone's ballad for the feature film 'Vertiges' to name just a few.
Kyle Eastwood’s own compositions are not neglected. Kyle Eastwood embraced
Marcel Proust’s phrase, 'The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new
landscapes, but in having new eyes.' Through his humble and respectful approach
to these songs, known to a great many, he brings original works, which have
become classics over time, up-to-date.
