On Sunday, September 23rd at the Monterey Jazz Festival, we hosted bassist (and Clint's son) KyleKyle Eastwood Eastwood and jazz vocalist Tierney Sutton at the Amoeba tent to sign their latest albums.

Kyle Eastwood grew up in Carmel, California as the eldest son of actor Clint Eastwood. His father hadbeen attending the Monterey Jazz Festival since it began in 1958, and when his children were born it became a yearly family outing. Initially studying film, Kyle soon realized that jazz was his true passion. After years of paying his dues gigging around Los Angeles and New York, his debut album From Here to There was released on Sony in 1998. Showing his ability as an accomplished composer, Kyle began working in film with a contribution to the score for Mystic River. The film later won two Academy Awards.

Today, Kyle Eastwood is less known as the son of Clint Eastwood and more of a universally respected musician and leader in his own right. Dynamic and pulsing, full of swing, great rhythms and memorable melodies, his 2011 release, Songs From The Chateau, is Eastwood’s fourth US effort. With this new album Eastwood set out to capture the sounds and energy with which his band regularly tours the world to sellout crowds.
