Kyle Eastwood has released his fifth solo album, Songs from the Chateau. The nine-track collection pays homage to France, where he spends his time while not living in Los Angeles, and was recorded in Chateau Couronneau, a 15th century chateau in Ligueux.
Eastwood, who doubles on electric and upright, has kept a steady band in a genre where artists often float between groups.
“Some of my favorite albums in jazz were made by musicians who stayed together and developed this kind of group feeling and that is something that has always been important to me,” he said. “We went in and recorded the way we would usually play a gig and I think this album really captures the way this band plays and interacts musically in a live setting.”
